JERRY CITY - A Wood County Sheriff's deputy was listed in fair condition this morning following a Wednesday traffic crash on Ohio 281 at Huffman Road, north of the village.
According to the Bowling Green Post of the Ohio Highway Patrol, at 6:37 p.m. Dep. Josh Augsburger, 33, was driving a marked Sheriff's patrol vehicle southbound on Huffman Road at Route 281. He failed to yield the right of way from the stop sign and was struck by an eastbound 2006 Kia Sportage driven by Krysten King, 18, Defiance, on Route 281.
After impact, both vehicles went off the east side of Huffman Road, coming to rest in a bean field.
Augsburger sustained serious injuries and was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, Toledo, by Life Flight, where he was still a patient this morning. King sustained minor injuries and was taken to Wood County Hospital by Bloom Township EMS.
Both vehicles received heavy damage and were towed from the scene.
Chief Deputy Eric Reynolds said this morning that Augsburger has been with the office for two years, and has not had any previous crashes on the job.
The incident is still under investigation by the Highway Patrol.
