Daniel L. Garza, 18, of Kirby, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 6:45 p.m. crash, the Wyandot County Sheriff's Department said. The driver of the vehicle, David R. Christy, 43, of Harpster, was treated at Wyandot Memorial Hospital.

The sheriff's department received an emergency call from a residence on County Rd. 119 that reported a one-vehicle crash on the west side of the road just north of Township Road 65.

According to the report, Mr. Christy was southbound on County Road 119 when he lost control of the vehicle and went off the right side of the road and struck a power pole before coming to a rest in a cornfield. Both men were ejected from the vehicle. Neither was wearing a seat belt.
