Holiday Weekend Fatal Crash Under Investigation
A Saturday evening crash has claimed the life of a Dellroy man.
The crash occurred at 11:09pm on State Route 416, near milepost 14, just south of Reeds Run Road.
Troopers with the New Philadelphia Post of the State Highway Patrol say 43-year-old Gary T. Hinderer was traveling northbound on State Route 416 when he went off the left side of the roadway and struck an embankment. The vehicle, a 1999 Ford Ranger, overturned, struck a power pole, and eventually came to a rest on its roof.
Hinderer was transported to Union Hospital in Dover and was pronounced dead due to injuries sustained from the crash.
Troopers say Hinderer was not wearing his seat belt.
It is unknown if alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
