A local 20-year-old man has died from injuries sustained in a one-vehicle accident that happened Thursday afternoon on Ohio 547 in Huron County's Sherman Township.
Anson C. Hupp, 20, of Bellevue, was driving a 1998 Chevrolet Malibu southwest on Ohio 547 at 5:20 p.m. when the vehicle traveled off the left side of the road and struck an embankment, causing the vehicle to overturn multiple times, said troopers with the Norwalk post of the state Highway Patrol.
Hupp, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle, which came to a rest upright in a field on the south side of the road, troopers said. He suffered incapacitating injuries.
A LifeFlight helicopter flew Hupp from the scene to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo.
Hupp was listed in critical condition in the intensive care unit Friday afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.
Friday evening, troopers were informed by the Lucas County Coroner's Office that Hupp had died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.
There is no indication of alcohol or drug involvement, and weather conditions were not a factor, troopers said. The crash remains under investigation and charges are pending.
Agencies that assisted troopers included LifeFlight, North Central EMS, the Huron River Joint Fire District and Dendinger Bros. Towing.
