According to a supervisor at the Lima post, the crash occurred at 2:10 p.m. at the intersection of Napoleon and Clum Roads. A 2015 Kia Rio, driven by Molli Nickles, 44, of Lima, was southbound on Napoleon Road, while a 2018 Chevrolet Cruze, driven by Stephen Brewer, 35, of Lima, was traveling westbound on Clum Road. Brewer failed to yield the right of way at a stop sign at the intersection, causing Nickles to strike the vehicle.
