OTTAWA — An Ottawa man was flown to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Toledo with unspecified injuries Thursday following a two-car crash in Putnam County.
Putnam County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched at 5:54 p.m. to a roll-over crash on Road 5 at the intersection of Road 1 in Blanchard Township. According to a report issued by the sheriff’s department, officers upon their arrival found Christopher Marshall Jr. trapped inside his vehicle.
