The Ottawa-Glandorf community is mourning the loss of a community member after a fatal crash Friday morning.

Athletic Director and varsity boys basketball coach Tyson McGlaughlin told the Lima News that Angela Schumaker, wife of junior varsity coach Brad Schumaker, was killed this morning.

After the accident, a semi driven by 51-year-old Richard Greene struck Gerten’s vehicle but didn’t cause any additional injuries.

The Putnam County Coroner pronounced Mrs. Schumaker dead at the scene.

Gerten suffered serious injuries and was rushed to Blanchard Valley Hospital.
