TIFFIN — A New Riegel man died this morning after his pickup crashed into several parked vehicles just outside Tiffin.
Dennis Rosier, 63, died at Mercy Health-Tiffin Hospital following the crash at the intersection of U.S. 224 and Ohio 18.
Rosier was driving a Ford F350 pickup truck when the truck crashed into several U-haul trucks parked at Rock Run Bulk Foods.
State Highway Patrol Trooper Don Pratt said a preliminary investigation indicates the Ford was pulling a trailer carrying a commercial ice maker when it made a right turn from Market Street onto Ohio 18.
The trailer flipped and the Ford crashed into five U-haul trailers and one U-haul truck.
Pratt said it is believed Rosier had a pre-existing medical condition involving his heart and that could be a contributing factor to the accident.
Columbia Gas of Ohio responded to the accident scene because the crash caused a gas line to leak.
The accident remains under investigation.
