A Lima man is dead after a single vehicle crash involving the commercial truck he was riding in.
29-year-old Benjamin Stoll of Lima died in the crash in southeast Auglaize County, around 3 p.m. Monday afternoon. Troopers say Stoll was a passenger in an International truck belonging to G A Wintzer & Son Co., and being driven by 41-year-old James Benshoff Jr. of Wapakoneta.
The state patrol says Benshoff was eastbound on Pusheta Road when the truck drifted off the right side of the roadway. He over-corrected and slid down an embankment. The vehicle then rolled over trapping both occupants inside.
Benjamin Stoll was pronounced dead at the scene, Benshoff was transported to Mercy Health St. Rita's with unknown injuries. The state patrol says speed does not appear to be a factor, and alcohol is not suspected.
The crash remains under investigation.
