Crash near Wapakoneta kills Allen County man

WAPAKONETA, Ohio An Allen County man was killed Tuesday after he lost control of his car just north of Wapakoneta.

Robert Gumm, 37, of Elida was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which was discovered just after 8 a.m. Wapakoneta police said they believe the accident occurred about 12:15 a.m. after Mr. Gumm was seen leaving a local sports bar. He was northbound on Auglaize County Road 25A when he apparently turned onto State Rt. 67 at an intersection, then suddenly veered back onto County Road 25A, police said.

Mr. Gumm lost control of his car, went into a ditch, hit a tree, and rolled over near the Auglaize River, police said. He was partially thrown from vehicle and pinned under it.
