U.S. 30 crash kills driver, shuts highway for 5 hours

OCEOLA, Ohio - U.S. 30 near the Wyandot-Crawford county line was closed for five hours after an 18-year-old woman from Bucyrus was killed in a three-vehicle crash yesterday morning, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.

Kandyel Hyer was pronounced dead at the scene after the 7:26 a.m. accident. A minute earlier, the Wyandot County Sheriff's Office received a call about a reckless or sleepy driver on U.S. 30. While on the phone, the caller said the vehicle in question had just been in a collision.

Ms. Hyer's car went left of center, colliding head-on with a tractor-trailer driven by Jack Cook, 60, of Plainfield, Ind. Lawrence Brooks, of Topeka, swerved to avoid the collision, but his car was struck on the driver's side. Neither of the men had visible injuries, troopers at the patrol's Bucyrus post said.
