LATTY – A Haviland man died early today from injuries sustained in a one-vehicle crash Thursday afternoon near Latty.

Dead is Timothy P. Palte, age 63.

According to the Ohio Highway Patrol’s Van Wert Post, the crash occurred at about 5:04 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21 on Ohio 613 near milepost 12 in Paulding Township.

Troopers said Palte was driving a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire westbound on 613 and traveled off the north side of the roadway and overcorrected. The car crossed the center line and struck the ditch embankment off the south side of the roadway where it came to rest.

Palte was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and was partially ejected and trapped beneath the vehicle. He was freed from the vehicle by passersby who stopped and overturned the vehicle, troopers said.

Palte was transported to Paulding County Hospital and later transferred to Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne. The Allen County (Ind.) Coroner’s Office reported that Palte succumbed to his injuries at around 4:04 a.m. Friday.

The crash is currently under investigation and alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash, according to the patrol press release.
