The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating after a Columbus man died Nov. 5 in a two-car crash in Orange Township.
Law-enforcement officials responded about 9:30 a.m. Nov. 5 to a crash near a business in the 7200 block of Graphics Way.
Edward R. Stahl Jr., 64, of Columbus failed to yield when he attempted to turn onto U.S. Route 23 from the business’ entryway, according to a news release from the patrol. Stahl’s sedan was struck by a northbound SUV after he turned onto Route 23, according to the release.
Delaware County EMS transported Stahl to a Delaware County medical facility, where he was pronounced dead, the release states. EMS took the driver of the SUV to a Columbus hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.
While the investigation into the crash continues, law-enforcement officials do not think alcohol or drugs played a role.
