ELIDA — The Ohio State Highway Patrol has issued a release outlining the details of Thursday afternoon’s two-vehicle crash that sent two people to the hospital.

According to the Highway Patrol, Christian R. Long, 17, of Elida, was driving a 2001 Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck north on Cable Road, while Edith Conn, 49, of Elida, was driving a 2009 Mercury Mariner eastbound on State Road. Long failed to yield the right of way to Conn, striking the vehicle. Conn’s vehicle then went off the left side of the roadway, striking a road sign, the ditch and a utility pole before overturning.

Both Conn and her passenger, Merle Hentze, 74, of Elida, were trapped in the vehicle. They were freed by mechanical means by the American Township Fire Department. While both Conn and Hentze were transported to St. Rita’s Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, Hentze’s injuries were more severe. Conn and Long were wearing seat belts, while Hentze was not. Long was not injured.

Long will be cited for failure to yield from a stop sign, according to the Highway Patrol. Alcohol and drugs were not believed to be a factor in the crash.
