Just before 10 pm Wednesday night, Kody Detwiler, 24, of Ohio City, was heading south on U.S. 127 driving a Ford Taurus.  He was near State Route 709 south of Van Wert when he rear-ended a Honda Oddysey driven by Frederick Langner, 67, of Dublin. Detwiler's Taurus continued off the road, striking a house at 14913 U.S. Route 127.  The house sustained significant structural damage and fire broke out as a result of the crash.

Detwiler fled the scene and was later located at Van Wert County Hospital, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol. The crash remains under investigation and charges are pending.
