DELTA, Ohio - A Toledoan working as a flagman for traffic control east of Delta was hospitalized after being hit by a tractor-trailer yesterday, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.
Sidney Warner, 56, was struck about 1:40 p.m. while working at a utility repair site on Airport Highway near Fulton County Road 5. Troopers said he was flown to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo, where a hospital spokesman last night said he was in serious condition.
The driver of the tractor-trailer, Stanley R. Bowers, 43, of Lakeview, Ohio, was not hurt. No charges have been filed as their investigation is continuing, troopers said.
