From our media partner The Courier's Steve Dillon:

HANCOCK COUNTY (WTOL) - Authorities have made a preliminary identification of the man who was killed in a traffic accident on OH 12, west of Arcadia, Thursday evening.

Hancock County Sheriff's Sgt. Tom Blunk said tips from callers have led them to believe the adult white male is from the Fostoria area.

However, Blunk said Friday afternoon the man's name won't be released until a positive identification is made.

"We're pretty confident that we know who he is but have a few other things we need to check out," Blunk said.

He said the identity will be confirmed using dental records or other medical information, and through an autopsy,

The man died after being struck by a car that was traveling east on OH 12, near Cass Township Road 215, at about 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

The sheriff's office said the man was wearing dark clothing and was near the center of the road when he was hit by the car and thrown onto the westbound lane.

The victim, who was pronounced dead a short time later at Blanchard Valley Hospital, was not carrying any identification, according to a deputy.

 

 

The Hancock County Sheriff's Office is trying to identify a person who was hit by a car and killed last night.

The victim was walking along State Route 12 near Township Road 215 in Cass Township around 7:30.

The sheriff's office tells us 64 year-old Viola Fink hit an unidentified white male. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. The victim was about 6' tall with brown or blonde hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a black Carhart coat and blue jeans.

Fink and a passenger were not injured.

If you know who the victim might be, you are asked to call the Hancock County Sheriff's office at 419-422-2424.

    The City of Toledo is apologizing to a man after they billed him for cutting grass on public property near his home.  Anthony Davis and his wife have lived in their home in south Toledo since 1995. The grass in the cul-de-sac outside their home is often overgrown. Davis normally does not mind cutting it himself.  "Just so that we don't look like we're living in some type of jungle or something," Davis said. However, recently the grass grew up to his knees. He...
