Fremont man killed in car-crash van

FREMONT — A Fremont man was killed Friday in a collision at the intersection of Hayes Avenue and Sullivan Road, a few miles east of here, according to the Ohio Highway Patrol.

Steven J. Lucas, 52, died at the scene apparently from head injuries, troopers from the Fremont post said.

Mr. Lucas was driving west on Hayes in a cargo van when a car northbound on Bartson Road attempting to cross Hayes to continue north on Sullivan pulled in front of him after stopping at a stop sign.

After the impact, the van went off the right side of the road and overturned on the driver's side. Mr. Lucas was not wearing a seat belt.

The driver of the car, Jeanette M. Gleba, 59, of Fremont, was flown to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, where she was listed in fair condition last night. She was wearing a seat belt.

The crash remains under investigation.
