City woman hospitalized after crash

A Findlay woman remains in a Toledo hospital with injuries suffered in a two-vehicle accident Sunday afternoon on U.S. 23 near Upper Sandusky.
Heather Plansinis, 39, of Findlay, was listed in fair condition Tuesday in Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center.
Three other people suffered minor injuries in the accident, which occurred at 1:26 p.m. at the intersection of U.S. 23 and County Highway 121.
According to the Wyandot County Sheriff’s Office, Plansinis was driving a 2013 Chevy Cruze south on U.S. 23 when a 2003 Ford F-250 pickup truck driven by Thomas E. Carter, 25, of Upper Sandusky, pulled into the U.S. 23 intersection from County Highway 121 and into the path of Plansinis’ car. To avoid a collision, Plansinis swerved off the right side of the road and struck a ditch, the sheriff’s office reported.
Plansinis was flown by a LifeFlight helicopter to the Toledo hospital. Three passengers in her car, Andrew Duesenberry, 15, Izabella Plansinis, 5, and Kalyn Duesenberry, 13, all of Findlay, were taken by ambulance to Wyandot Memorial Hospital with possible injuries, according to the sheriff’s office.
Carter, who was not injured, was cited for failure to yield.
