Two people were injured in a three-vehicle accident about 7:30 a.m. today at the intersection of U.S. 224 and Marion Township 215, east of Findlay, according to a news release from the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office.
Olivia Sexton, 18, of Findlay, was driving a 2014 Ford Escape east on U.S. 224, when Nicole Frankart, 26, of Attica, driving a 2015 Jeep Cherokee west on U.S. 224, slowed and started to turn left onto Township 215. She went into the path of Sexton’s vehicle and was struck in the passenger side by Sexton’s vehicle.
Frankart’s vehicle spun counterclockwise after impact and struck a stopped Jeep, driven by Tamara Brodman, 37, of Findlay. Sexton’s vehicle spun clockwise and stopped facing southwest in the east lane of U.S. 224.
Sexton and Frankart were taken by Hanco Emergency Medical Service to Blanchard Valley Hospital.
