BOWLING GREEN — A woman from Lima, Ohio, remained hospitalized yesterday after a two-car crash Tuesday just south of Bowling Green.

Miss Marshall was listed in serious condition yesterday in Toledo Hospital, where she was taken by air ambulance. Mr. McCarthy was not hurt, while his passenger, Surat Schaller, 58, of Bowling Green, was treated at Wood County Hospital.

Mr. McCarthy was taken to the Wood County jail after he was charged with driving under the influence.
