Further examination of damage sustained to the Nissan leads troopers to believe the other vehicle involved in this crash is a semi-tractor trailer, a dump truck or other heavy commercial vehicle. The impact likely caused damage to the rear of the unknown vehicle, its trailer or the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) bumper. The unknown vehicle possibly went northbound on U.S. 23 after leaving the scene of the crash. The crash remains under investigation and anyone with information regarding the location of this vehicle, the identity of its driver or any other information is asked to call the Bucyrus Post at 419-562-8040.

The preliminary investigation shows Brady D. Neifer, 25, Archbold, Ohio, was operating a Nissan Maxima, southbound on U.S. Route 23 when his vehicle struck an unknown vehicle.
