Initial investigations show that a blue 1992 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Philip Martin, 67, of Versailles was traveling north on state Route 127 and a 2013 black Dodge Charger, driven by Kellen Amspaugh, 31, of Ansonia was traveling south on state Route 127.

Martin reportedly suffered a medical emergency and lost control of his vehicle and crossed over the center line. Amspaugh swerved to avoid Martin’s vehicle and drove off the right side of the road. Both vehicles landed in a ditch beside the road, the Darke County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Martin was transported to Wayne Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead due to the medical emergency. There is no word on if Amspaugh was injured.
