Weston woman hurt in crash
One woman was injured in a Thursday crash on Liberty Hi Road at Sand Ridge Road southwest of the city.
The Wood County Sheriff's Office reports that at 2:50 p.m. Emma Greer, Weston, was northbound on Liberty Hi Road when she failed to yield the right of way to Gordon Barnes, Weston, after stopping at the posted stop sign.
Barnes' vehicle struck Greer's. Her vehicle then slid off the road into a field to the southwest of the intersection.
Greer then reportedly put the vehicle in reverse and struck Barnes' vehicle in the rear.
Greer was taken to Wood County Hospital with non-incapacitating injuries.
She was cited for right-of-way at a stop sign.
Wood Lane investigates report of sex misconduct
Investigators are looking into allegations of gross sexual imposition involving two adults currently receiving services from Wood Lane.
The incident was reported to Bowling Green police just after 7 p.m. on Wednesday at an apartment in the 1000 block of Fairview Avenue.
Wood Lane Superintendent Melanie Stretchbery said the incident occurred between two residents at the apartment. Both live independently and receive drop-in services from Wood Lane.
She said the incident involved an allegation of "inappropriate touching of a sexual nature."
Stretchbery said that in such cases, Wood Lane has protocols in place with law enforcement as to who takes the lead.
"In this one, in the protocol, the BG Police Department is not taking the lead. Our investigative agents," trained by the state of Ohio and licensed, are conducting the investigation, she said.
"At this time the individual is safe and the investigation is under way."

Man guilty of theft, sex charge
A Haskins man pleaded guilty to multiple counts, including grand theft and sex charges.
Keith M. Stetler, 19, appeared Friday in the courtroom of Wood County Judge Alan Mayberry.
He pleaded guilty to grand theft when the property is a firearm, two counts of burglary, receiving stolen property, one count of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance, and one count of voyeurism.
The grand theft, burglary and receiving stolen property counts stemmed from the theft of two guns from his parents’ Haskins home in December, 2012 and from a November 2012, theft of two handguns from a Weston residence, as well as the theft of items from his grandmother’s home in Haskins, reportedly perpetrated with another individual. Three of the stolen weapons were sold.
The sex charges stem from an incident discovered in April. Stetler reportedly took video on his phone of a -16-year-old girl in a state of nudity.
As part of a plea deal, firearms specifications were dropped. Stetler is to be sentenced Feb. 7.
