Autopsies set for 2 deaths linked to storm

The Lucas County Coroner will perform autopsies Monday on two victims of weather-related incidents.

Jason Sebolt, 27, of Hillsdale died at about 9 p.m. Friday when he drove his snowmobile head on into a vehicle in Hillsdale County's Adams Township, sheriff's deputies said.

The snowmobile was southbound in the northbound lane of Lake Pleasant Road when the collision occurred.

The three teenage occupants of the other vehicle were not injured.

Near Convoy, Ohio, an 84-year-old man whose power was knocked out by Friday's ice storm is believed to have died of carbon monoxide poisoning from a generator he was operating in his garage.

The body of J.C. "Junior" Duncan was found at about 5:30 p.m. Friday by family members, according to Convoy Fire Chief Don Wilson.

Van Wert County Coroner Dr. Scott Jarvis said the generator was operated in a closed garage and probably led to carbon monoxide poisoning.
