Ohioan dies in area crash

A Cecil, Ohio man died Friday night in a one-vehicle crash in northwest Ohio.

Sylvester D. Ankney, 63, of Cecil, was driving a 2007 Buick Rendezvous east on the Defiance-Paulding County Line Road, about a half mile east of The Bend Road, about 9 p.m. when he went off the north side of the road, over-corrected and went back into the eastbound lane. He over-corrected again, went off the north side of the road and struck a ditch before his vehicle overturned several times, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
