The crash occurred that day at about 6:17 pm, when a motorcycle, ridden by William J. Stahler, 49, of rural Montpelier, was traveling east on St. Rt. 34 while a sport-utility vehicle, driven by Robert Hawk, 30, Archbold, was traveling south on Henry Co. Rd. 24.

Information available indicates Hawk stopped at the stop sign for the St. Rt. 34 intersection, then drove into the intersection, where they collided.

Stahler died of injuries suffered in the crash. Hawk was not injured.

As of Monday, July 26, no charges have been filed against Hawk.
