In Wood County on St. Patrick's Day last year there were seven total crashes, with two crashes injuring three persons. Two crashes were non-injury, alcohol-related incidents and the drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The alcohol-involved crashes happened in Bowling Green with a 20-year-old driver at 1:09 a.m. and in Perrysburg with a 19-year-old driver at 11:55 p.m.
