Three Findlay residents were injured in a car-pickup truck collision Tuesday night at the intersection of Hancock County 313 and Hancock County 9, at the southwest edge of Findlay, the Hancock County Sheriffs Office reported.

Taken to Blanchard Valley Hospital were Emily Spence, 21, the driver of the car; Gary Ruppright, 72, the driver of the pickup; and Nancy Ruppright, a passenger in the pickup, the sheriffs office said.

According to the sheriffs office, Spence was driving a 2012 Kia Forte north on County Road 9 about 9:17 p.m. when she failed to stop at the stop sign at County Road 313. She hit a 2016 Ford F150 driven by Gary Ruppright, who was westbound on County 313, the sheriffs office said.

The truck then traveled 176 feet off the north side of the road and struck a fence.

The accident remained under investigation Tuesday night.

Liberty Township Fire Department, Hanco EMS, B&G Towing and Dicks Towing assisted at the accident scene.
