The man who died in a bizarre crash Wednesday afternoon on Interstate 469 has been identified as Ricky Gene Richhart, 51, of New Haven, according to a statement from the Allen County Coroner’s office.
An autopsy on Thursday found that Richhart died of blunt force trauma when the truck he was driving on a rural road crashed through a guardrail, went onto the interstate and overturned.
His death was ruled an accident, the statement said.
Richhart is Allen County’s 17th traffic fatality in 2014.
The incident is still under investigation.
