Fog may be factor in central Ohio crash that killed 72-year-old man


PATASKALA, Ohio — Fog may have contributed to a crash overnight that killed a 72-year-old Ohio man.

Roy Rose of Pataskala in central Ohio was standing near the passenger side of his car on Christmas Eve after it got stuck in a snow embankment just after 7 p.m.

Another car, driven by 78-year-old Richard Runzel of Granville, hit Rose's car, causing it to spin and hit Rose.

Rose died soon after at a nearby hospital.

Runzel and a passenger in Rose's car, 73-year-old Emogene Henry of Galloway, had minor injuries.

The accident remains under investigation, but officials say that foggy weather could have been a factor.
