(8-31-19) A Spencerville man is dead after a serious two-vehicle crash on U.S. 33 west of Sites Road in Mercer County  Friday night at around 7:56 p.m.

Troopers found that Timothy D. Huffman (32) of Spencerville was driving a silver 2004 Chevrolet Malibu westbound on U.S. 33. Meanwhile, Shirley A. Price, 71, of Rockford, was traveling eastbound on U.S. 33 in a dark blue 2006 Ford Freestyle.

Huffman traveled left of center into the eastbound lane. Price drove towards the westbound lane to try to avoid the Malibu, but crashed head-on into it. Both vehicles sustained severe damage.

“Mrs. Price was taken by LifeFlight to St. Ritas Hospital for incapacitating injuries. Mr. Price was taken by Rockford EMS to St. Ritas for non-incapacitating injuries.”

Huffman was pronounced dead at the scene by Celina EMA personnel and was transported to the Lehman Dzendzel Funeral Home in Celina.

Huffman was not wearing a properly adjusted seat-belt, both Shirley and Marion Price were.

Shirley Price and passenger, Marion L. Price, were both transported by Rockford EMS to Joint Township District Memorial Hospital in St. Marys.

Alcohol is not suspected in the crash, although the cause of Huffman traveling left of center is unknown.

The crash remains under investigation.
