Two people were injured in a three-vehicle crash that happened at 10:30 a.m. at North Main Street and Trenton Avenue in Findlay, according to the Findlay Police Department.

Richard D. Morris, 71, of Findlay, was traveling southbound on North Main Street in a 2013 Ford F-150 when he ran a red light at the Trenton Avenue intersection, police said. He then hit an eastbound 1999 Chevrolet Lumina that was turning left from Trenton Avenue onto North Main Street.

The two vehicles then collided with a third vehicle, a 2015 Ford F-150, that was turning right to head southbound on North Main Street, police added. Morris’ F-150 continued traveling southbound after the crash and came to a rest in Howard Run, south of Foulke Avenue.

Morris and the Lumina’s driver, Chris Halstead, 50, of McComb, were transported by Hanco EMS to Blanchard Valley Hospital to be treated for unknown injuries.

The third driver, Jeff Hawley, 58, of Nashville, Tennessee, was not injured in the crash.

Morris was cited for a red light violation and for driving with a suspended license, police said.

The Findlay Fire Department, Lowery’s Towing, and Mac & Bob’s Towing assisted at the scene.
