An 85-year-old Ohio man has died from injuries suffered when the vehicle he was riding in went off the road in east Allen County last week.

James M. Clark of Paulding died Sunday at Parkview Regional Medical Center, according to the Allen County Coroner’s Office.

Clark suffered blunt-force trauma in the crash. His death is the county’s 36th traffic fatality this year, the coroner’s office said.

Clark was wearing a seat belt in the back seat of a vehicle when it went off Dawkins Road at Sampson Road and into a ditch on Friday, the coroner’s office said. The crash is still under investigation.
