One person is dead after a two-vehicle crash this morning on Bluffton Road. At around 6 a.m. the Allen County Sheriff’s Department responded to the crash just south of Ferguson Road. According to witnesses, a blue Jeep was traveling south on Bluffton when it crossed the center line and struck a yellow VW Beetle traveling north, according to sheriff’s department spokesman Jeremy Tinkel, in a news release.

The head-on collision caused the VW to spin into the ditch while the Jeep overturned in the middle of the road.

The female driver of the VW was pronounced dead at the scene while the male driver of the Jeep sustained minor injuries, Tinkel said in the release.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts. Alcohol is believed to be a factor, he said.

The crash remains under investigation by the sheriff’s department. Bluffton Road was closed in both directions south of Ferguson for several hours.
