A North Toledo man and a teenager died yesterday after their sport utility vehicle went off I-75 and rolled down an embankment, authorities said.
The SUV was northbound on I-75 south of Ottawa River Road about 1:20 p.m. when the vehicle struck and went over a guardrail. Leonel Ramos, 20, of 1122 East Central Ave. was thrown from the vehicle.
His body was found almost an hour after the crash, concealed in high grass and cattails, authorities said.
Mr. Ramos was pronounced dead at the scene, said Steve Kahle, a Lucas County coroner's investigator. Jose Renteria, 13, also of the East Central address, was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, where he died at 2:15 p.m.
