2nd man dies from crash into house after pursuit


A Wood County man who was a passenger in the car that crashed into a house in North Toledo during a police pursuit died late Saturday in Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, authorities said.

Daniel Clapsaddle, 20, of Millbury is the second fatality from the 2:30 a.m. Saturday accident at North Detroit Avenue and near Alexis Road. The driver, Michael Geisen II, 22, of 29 East Streicher St., was pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy for Mr. Clapsaddle is scheduled to be performed today by the Lucas County coroner.

Police said an officer in a marked patrol car tried to stop Mr. Geisen for erratic driving at Matzinger Road and Stickney Avenue but he failed to stop, taking the officer on a high-speed chase that ended when he crashed into the house, ejecting the driver and two passengers.

The other passenger, Kendal Thorn, 22, was in fair condition at St. Vincent.
