A woman was injured in a two-vehicle crash at Hancock County 23 and Biglick Township 209, south of West Independence, at 10:53 a.m., according to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office.

Kristine Peters, 42, of Alvada, was stopped at a stop sign on Biglick Township 209, traveling eastbound in a 2015 Ford Explorer, when she pulled into the intersection, according to the sheriff’s office. In doing so, Peters’ Explorer struck the rear driver side portion of a 2016 Infiniti QX80 driven by Samantha Zaciewski, 40, that was northbound on Hancock County 23.

Zaciewski’s vehicle went off the east side of Hancock County 23, then overcorrected and went off the west side of Hancock County 23 into a ditch, the sheriff’s office said. The vehicle then overturned a couple of times before coming to rest upright in a soybean field, the sheriff’s office added.

Zaciewski was taken by Hanco EMS to Blanchard Valley Hospital for her injuries; her status is currently unknown.

Both drivers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash, the sheriff’s office said, and air bags deployed in both vehicles.

Peters was cited for failure to yield from a stop sign.

The Washington Township Fire Department, Rinehart’s Towing, and Dick’s Towing assisted at the scene.
