A male driver lost his life a day after being involved in a head-on collision on State Route 53, Ottawa County, on Monday evening, December 7th. 34-year-old Adam Borror of Port Clinton died on Tuesday afternoon, December 8th, at about 3:46 p.m. while undergoing treatment at ProMedica Toledo Hospital.
Troopers from the Ohio State Patrol said medics rushed the victim and the other driver involved in the crash, Danny Wamsley, 68, of Oak Harbor, to the hospital after the occurrence. The latter occurred precisely in Bay Township near Mulcahy Road.
In the crash report, the troopers stated that Wamsley was northbound on Route 53 when he went off the center and struck the southbound car driven by Borror. It happened a little after 5 p.m., and the collision's impact sent both vehicles off in the opposite direction of the roadway.
The crash left both men stuck in their cars, and first responders had to extricate them. The investigators said Wamsley was in critical condition when he arrived at the hospital, and there's no update on his state at this time.
The surviving victim and Borror were wearing their seatbelts when the crash happened, and impairment does not appear to have factored in the incident. The head-on collision on State Route 53 remains under investigation.
If investigators uncover impairment by the at-fault driver at the time of the crash, they will recommend a DUI and possibly vehicular manslaughter charge to the District Attorney's Office. If found guilty by the court, the driver would face jail time or payment of fines.
The victim's family can enlist an Ohio car accident attorney's help to file a lawsuit for wrongful death. If they succeed at the trial, they will receive damages to compensate for the loss suffered.
