A Norwalk man was killed Sunday after his van struck a house on Ohio 61.

Olray Jones, 72, of Norwalk, was operating a van that went off the left side of the roadway, according to preliminary reports from troopers with the state Highway Patrol. Jones then overcorrected and went off the right side of the roadway, striking a tree and then the house, which was located at 776 E. Ohio 61.

Jones was killed in the crash, troopers said.

His wife and passenger, Renate G. Jones, 74, was flown from the scene by LifeFlight to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo.
