Ohio Highway Patrol Norwalk Post Investigating a One Vehicle Fatal Crash

The Norwalk Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is currently conducting an investigation into a tragic one-vehicle crash that took place on Friday, December 8, 2023, at approximately 8:47 PM on County Road 35, just north of Township Road 44 in Venice Township, Seneca County.


The driver, Heath Mahl, 41 years old from Attica, Ohio, was travelling north in a GMC Acadia when the incident occurred. While navigating a curve, Mr. Mahl veered off the right side of the road, colliding with a fence.


The vehicle then proceeded to go over an embankment, subsequently striking multiple trees. Tragically, Mr. Mahl, who was appropriately wearing his seat belt at the time, succumbed to his injuries.


The Ohio State Highway Patrol suspect that alcohol was a contributing factor in this particular crash.


Following the incident, Mr. Mahl's body was transported to Mercy Health in Tiffin by the Seneca County EMS.


Additionally, Hess Towing and Recovery was responsible for towing the vehicle from the scene.


The Ohio State Highway Patrol received assistance from the Seneca County Sheriff's Office, Attica Fire Department, Seneca County EMS, and Hess Towing and Recovery throughout the course of this investigation.
