PORTAGE TOWNSHIP, OH (TOLEDO NEWS NOW) - The Ottawa County sheriff confirms Cameron Hammond of Mansfield was killed in a Portage Township crash just before 1 a.m. Friday. The passenger, Tory Aberts of Mansfield, survived.
It happened on State Route 163 and Christy Chapel Road in Portage Township. The sheriff says the Volkswagen Jetta veered off the road after missing a turn, went into and out of a ditch, then hit a tree.
When crews arrived, they found the car near a house. Hammond was dead at the scene, partially ejected from the vehicle. Aberts was found in a driveway. He was able to talk to deputies before being transported to Magruder Hospital.
The sheriff thinks drugs, alcohol and speed all played a role in the crash.
