Holiday weekend traffic accidents in Findlay and Hancock County injured two people, authorities report.

A three-vehicle crash injured one motorist in the 500 block of West Bigelow Avenue at 1:55 p.m. Sunday, the Findlay Police Department reported.

Airam Alexis Marreo Vega, 21, of Findlay, was treated at the scene by Hanco Ambulance.

A police department report said an unknown driver disregarded a stop sign on Greenacre Drive before turning left onto Bigelow Avenue. Vega, who was traveling west on Bigelow Avenue in a Chevy, swerved to miss the first auto, lost control of his vehicle, crossed the center line and struck an eastbound Jeep operated by Christopher Chapin, 36, of Fostoria.

The Jeep then hit a ditch and a fence.

The motorist in the first vehicle left the scene and was not identified, police said.

Separately, the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a single-vehicle crash on Liberty Township 79 at 9:16 a.m. Saturday.

Nicole Biery, 18, was taken by a parent to Bluffton Hospital to be treated for non-incapacitating injuries, according to a sheriff’s office report.

The sheriff’s office said Biery lost control of a Ford that went off the side of the road, hitting a bush and a tree before coming to rest in a ditch.

Biery was ticketed for failing to control a vehicle.

The sheriff’s office also responded to at least two non-injury accidents on slick roadways Saturday.

A Columbus man was cited for failing to control a Chrysler that skidded into a ditch and hit a traffic sign off Ohio 235 in Orange Township.

Also, a Lima person was ticketed for failing to control a Chevy Malibu that spun into a ditch and fence posts off Hancock County 313 in Union Township.
