PANDORA, Ohio - An Ottawa, Ohio, woman was hurt critically in a two-car collision yesterday in Riley Township near here, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
Marilyn Kreinbrink, 53, was in critical condition last night in St. Rita's Hospital in Lima following the 3:46 p.m. crash at State Rt. 12 and Putnam County Road 5.
According to troopers at the patrol's Lima post, Ms. Kreinbrink was traveling north on County Road 5 when she stopped at Route 12, then proceeded into the path of an eastbound pickup driven by Wendie Swary, 34, of Pandora.
Mrs. Swary and two children who were riding with her were taken by Mrs. Swary's husband to Blanchard Valley Hospital, where they were treated.
Troopers said Ms. Kreinbrink had two juvenile passengers in her vehicle as well, but the highway patrol's initial report did not indicate whether they were injured in the crash.
