(11-18-20) This week in Van Wert County Common Pleas Court Ronald Schumm (23) of Willshire was sentenced to 12 months in prison, with no credit for time served, on a charge of aggravated vehicular homicide, a felony of the third degree.
Schumm must report to the jail on November 30 for transport to prison and is under house arrest until then. Schumm’s driver’s license was also suspended for three years.
On August 2, 2019 Schumm’s 2008 Ford F-150 pickup truck went left of center on U.S. 224 and hit a vehicle driven by Jason Peters (45) of Auburn, Indiana, and would next crash into the driver’s front side of a pickup driven by Steven Moshier (56) of Wellston. Moshier was pronounced dead at the scene.
Alcohol was a factor in the accident.
