TOLEDO

Authorities in Ohio say they are looking into whether a Michigan man who died after a crash on Interstate 75 was distracted by his phone.

Toledo police initially reported the driver was texting before the crash, but they now aren’t sure if that is what happened.

Officers say 51-year-old Ken Harder of Temperance, Mich., died Tuesday from injuries suffered in the violent crash Monday afternoon.

The Blade newspaper reports Harder’s SUV slammed into a parked Ohio Department of Transportation maintenance truck whose workers were picking up litter along I-75 in Toledo. The truck was parked off the roadway.

Police say a witness told them the SUV driver was distracted by his cellphone.
