MAPLEWOOD — Speed has been determined by the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office to be the cause of the July 17 fatal crash on state Route 47 in Maplewood.

Dustin G. Brogan, 22, of East Liberty, was killed, and 18-year-old Nakiaya K. Arrone, of Sidney, was taken by CareFlight after the early Wednesday morning crash.

According to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office, dispatch received a 911 report of a crash with injuries in the 21,000 block of state Route 47 on Wednesday, July 17, at 12:22 a.m.

Brogan was driving a 2018 Honda SUV. Arrone was a passenger in the vehicle.

The crash report indicates the SUV was traveling westbound on state Route 47 when it failed to negotiate a right curve. The vehicle began to slide broadside, crossed the center-line and travelled off of the left side of the roadway. It then went airborne and landed in the yard at 21000 State Route 47, where it continued its broadside slide before striking a tree and ejecting Brogan, whom was pronounced dead at the scene. Arrone was taken via CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton.

Assisting at the scene was Maplewood Fire Department and Perry Port Salem EMS.
