PERRY TOWNSHIP — A car-semi accident Thursday morning sent two people to a Lima hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
According to Perry Township Fire Chief Justin Roberts, the accident occurred at 11:16 a.m. at the intersection of state Route 117 and Bowman Road. Two of the individuals involved in the crash were transported to Mercy Health-St. Rita’s Medical Center for treatment.
Roberts refused to release the names of those individuals, claiming the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act guidelines kept him from releasing the names of the people. Ohio’s open records laws make the patient’s name, address and other non-medical personal information on EMS run sheets available to the public.
