Eight people were injured in two separate traffic crashes on Wood County roads Wednesday.
At 10:45 a.m. Nancy Smith, Risingsun, was southbound on Pemberville Road when she reportedly failed to yield at the stop sign at the intersection with U.S. 6 and was struck by Luke Brickman, Findlay, who was driving eastbound on Route 6.
Smith and her passenger, Ashley Sharp, Risingsun, sustained incapacitating injuries and were taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, Toledo, via air ambulance. Information on their conditions was not available this morning.
Brickman was not injured. His passengers, Charlotte Brickman and Kaitlin Giesey, both of Findlay, sustained non-incapacitating injuries and were taken to Wood County Hospital by Bradner EMS. A third passenger was not injured.
A citation in the crash is pending.
At 6:20 p.m., Alexander Smith, Sylvania, was westbound on Dirlam Road, east of Napo-leon Road, when he lost control of the vehicle, drove off the north side of the road, and then re-entered the roadway, subsequently driving off the left side of the road and striking a tree.
Smith and two of his passengers, Joshua Flipse, Pemberville, and Riki Rossman, Luckey, sustained non-incapacitating injuries and were taken to Wood County Hospital by Mid-County 120 EMS and Bowling Green Fire/EMS. Another passenger, Justin Slaughterbeck, Pemberville, sustained non-incapacitating injuries and was transported to St. Vincent's by air ambulance.
