Lyons man dies in weekend crash


A Lyons man died Sunday in a single vehicle accident in Fulton Township.

The Toledo post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol reported that a 1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by Mark Murar, 22, was westbound on County Road C near County Road 11 at an unknown time when it went off the south side of the road, struck an embankment and guardrail, then overturned and struck a ditch embankment.

Murar was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not wearing a safety belt, and alcohol appears to be a factor in the accident.

Troopers were assisted at the scene by the Wauseon Fire Department and the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office.

An investigation continues.
