2 Port Clinton residents hurt in single-car crash

PORT CLINTON — Two Port Clinton residents were injured, one seriously, in a single-vehicle crash about 4:25 a.m. Sunday on State Road west of Gypsum Road in Ottawa County’s Portage Township, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.

Roy D. Cox II, 31, was westbound on State Road when he failed to negotiate a right curve and went off the road. The driver’s side of the car struck an iron I-beam supporting a roadside billboard, troopers said.

He was transported to Magruder Hospital, Port Clinton, then taken by ambulance to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, Toledo. A hospital spokesman said Mr. Cox’s condition was unavailable.

A passenger, Casey M. Wadsworth, 29, was taken to Magruder Hospital. A spokesman said the hospital had no patient by that name.

Crews used hydraulic equipment to free both occupants of the car, who did not wear seat belts. Troopers said the vehicle’s front air bags deployed.

No charges have been filed, and the crash remains under investigation.
