A Monroeville man was killed and his brother was injured during an accident that ripped a car in half early this morning on Ridge Road.

The passenger, Michael D. Brant, 29, of 2612 Ohio 162, was pronounced dead at the scene by Huron County Coroner Dr. Jeffrey Harwood. It's unknown if he was wearing a seat belt because of the damage to the right side of the vehicle.

Norwalk Fire Capt. William Knadler estimated Brant was thrown about 50 or 60 feet from the 1993 Dodge Intrepid driven by Timothy A. Brant, 26, of 330 Peru Center Road, Monroeville.

Knadler was one of 11 firefighters who assisted North Central EMS and established a landing zone for the medical helicopter which took Timothy Brant, who was wearing his seat belt, to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo. There was no further information from the hospital or the state Highway Patrol on his condition this morning.

Sgt. Mary Mack said Timothy Brant sustained what may have been internal injuries to his chest area.

Knadler said the back half of the Intrepid looked like it was torn through the passenger area and the front section had part of the passenger side ripped off.

"The car was so torn up, it was kind of hard to tell," he said, adding that it appeared the vehicle probably hit a bridge abutment at an angle on the passenger side.

Timothy Brant was heading south on Ridge Road near South Norwalk Road about 2:15 a.m. today when he failed to negotiate a curve. He went off the right side of the road and hit a guardrail and bridge, which ripped the Intrepid in half from front to back and ejected the passenger, troopers said.

Mack said both halves of the vehicle were about 100 feet apart on the same side of the road where the driver left Ridge Road. No charges have been filed in the ongoing investigation.

Please Brants and friends of the Brants, Stop replying to the comments on here and this thing will drop of the top 10 list quickly. I feel for your lose, but replying to the comments on here just gets these people more incentive to poke and prod at you. I know it is hard to ignore, but please it is the only way these people will get bored and stop.

Hey anyone know where I can get some Coke or Crack or Pain Killers? Wait a minute I already know I can go to Sandusky and get coke or crack from Toby Brant. or does he only sell to family members? The pain killers oxey percs. vic. I can get from The brants Aunt Loretta and Uncle Curt Fredricks in greenwich. Hows that safe working out where you keep it all? While im there I can just go across the way and get a title notorized by Shirley Fulton. Who cares if its legal or not. A one stop shop. But I guess thats only if you are a family member too. All of you better be careful the cops have already been notified!
