Employee injured in industrial accident


OAK HARBOR, Ohio — An employee was injured Monday afternoon in an apparent industrial accident at Adfilm, Inc. on West Lake Winds Drive, the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office said.

James R. Hutton, of Port Clinton, was taken by Life Flight from the plant to University of Toledo Medical Center, formerly known at Medical College of Ohio, for injuries to his legs, deputies said. The hospital would not provide information on his condition.

About 2:30 p.m., 911 operators were told that a person was trapped in a machine at the plant east of Oak Harbor. Mid County Emergency Medical Service and Portage Township Fire Department were dispatched to the company, but the victim was freed from equipment before they arrived. No additional information was available.
