Motorist dies after crash, fire in Williams County


MONTPELIER, Ohio -- An unidentified motorist died Wednesday night after his car careened off U.S. 20 northwest of here in Williams County. The car hit a tree and caught fire.

Ohio Highway Patrol troopers said the driver was westbound on Route 20 about 10:30 p.m., drifted left of center, over-corrected, and went off the right side of the road before colliding with the tree.
