WAYNESVILLE, Ohio — Authorities have identified a Findlay man who died after the sport utility vehicle in which he was riding was struck by a dump truck in Warren County’s Wayne Township, troopers at the Lebanon, Ohio, post of the Ohio Highway Patrol said.

The man was identified as Randy A. Larson, 33, who was taken by medical helicopter to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, where he died.

Troopers said Mr. Larson was a passenger in an SUV driven by Stephen E.
