Woman dies in 2-car crash near Fostoria

FOSTORIA - A Fostoria woman was killed yesterday in a two-car collision at Stearns Road and England Road in Wood County's Perry Township, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.

The 86-year-old woman, who was driving one of the cars and whose name was being withheld pending notification of relatives, died in Wood County Hospital in Bowling Green, troopers at the patrol's Walbridge post said.

She was driving north on England about 5:50 p.m. when she stopped for a stop sign and then proceeded into the intersection where she collided with a car being driven east on Stearns by Nicole Gerkens, 26, of Cygnet, Ohio, troopers said.

Ms. Gerkens was treated at the Blanchard Valley Regional Health Center, Findlay, a hospital spokesman said.
