Posted: Updated:
PUTNAM COUNTY, OHIO -

A 21-year-old man was killed after driving into the path of a semi Tuesday night. Ohio State Highway Patrol Officers say Christopher A. Yohe of Ottawa was northbound on SR65 near Road P-9 when he passed a delivery van driven by 53-year-old John Solomon and drove into the path of a southbound semi driven by 32-year-old Jimmy D. Clarke of Indiana.

Yohe's vehicle was pushed back into the northbound lane after striking the semi and was struck by Mr. Solomon's vehicle. All three vehicles went off the east side of the road before coming to a rest.

Mr. Clarke was taken to St. Rita's Hospital in Lima and Mr. Solomon to the Ottawa Ambulatory Care.

Mr. Yohe was pronounced dead at the scene by the Putnam County Coroner. The accident remains under investigation.
