Single Vehicle Fatal Crash

Monroe Township – The Mansfield Post responded to a single vehicle crash on Swigart Road at Hastings East Road on January 5, 2022 at 4:49 pm. The caller stated the driver was unresponsive with the vehicle in gear, spinning the rear tires, with the doors locked.

Troopers located the vehicle in a field at the intersection of Swigart Road and Hastings East Road. The driver, Harold R. Feltner, 70, of Bellville was found unconscious in the driver’s seat. Troopers, with the assistance of Monroe Twp EMS/Fire, gained access into the vehicle and provided aid.

The preliminary investigation shows Feltner was traveling north on Swigart Road, crossed Hastings East Road and traveled into a field. The vehicle continued north through the field until the tires lost traction in the mud. It appears Feltner suffered a medical emergency prior to entering the field. Feltner was transported to Ohio Health Mansfield Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

The Monroe Township Fire and EMS, and Madison Township EMS assisted on scene.
