Four people were injured in three accidents reported by the Wood County Sheriff's Office this weekend.
Friday at 3:34 p.m. on Hammansburg Road, just east of Mitchell Road, Devin Strickland, 16, Cygnet, driving a 2001 Ford Ranger, was eastbound when he reportedly swerved to avoid a coyote in the roadway.
He drove off the left side of the roadway, then drove back onto the road and rolled over, coming to final rest on a ditch culvert. Strickland and his passenger, Hayleigh Simon, 15, North Baltimore, were taken to Wood County Hospital with non-incapacitating injuries by family members.
Strickland was cited for failure to control.
At 11:40 p.m. Steven Bowers, McClure, driving a 1999 Honda Accord, was eastbound on Ohio 281 near Henry/Wood County Line Road when he drove off the north side of the roadway and struck an embankment.
Bowers' vehicle then became airborne and overturned. It overturned several more times upon landing in a field, ejecting Bowers, who was not wearing a seatbelt.
Bowers was taken by air ambulance to University of Toledo Medical Center with incapacitating injuries. His status was not immediately available this morning.
At 2:47 a.m. this morning at 13701 Reitz Road, Middleton Township, Betty Goin, Grand Rapids, driving a 2005 Chevy Cobalt, was westbound when she reportedly fell asleep and drove off the road to the south, striking a bricked flower bed before becoming airborne. The vehicle came to rest in a ditch.
Goin was taken by family to Wood County Hospital with non-incapacitating injuries.
She was cited for failure to control.
