2 hurt, 1 critically in North Toledo crash

Two North Toledoans were injured yesterday morning when their pickup truck hit a tree near a senior center on Lagrange Street, authorities said.

The driver, Stephen Root, 43, was in critical condition last night at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, a hospital spokesman said.

His passenger, Janice Swartz, 56, was in serious condition at St. Vincent, a hospital spokesman said.

Mr. Root was eastbound on Central Avenue near Lagrange about 7:52 a.m. when he lost control and went off the right side of the road, police said.

He crossed Lagrange and hit several bags of trash before striking a tree near the Chester Zablocki Senior Center, 3015 Lagrange St., police said.
