Clyde woman killed, 2 Fremont women injured in car accident


GREEN SPRINGS, Ohio -- A Clyde, Ohio, woman was killed and two Fremont women were injured when a car and a minivan collided at a road intersection near this community today, authorities said.

Judith Hansen, 69, who was driving the car, was flown to University of Toledo Medical College, the former Medical College of Ohio Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, according to the Ohio Highway Patrol's Fremont post.

Alyson Johnson, 25, the driver of the minivan, was taken with "incapacitating injuries" to ProMedica Memorial Hospital in Fremont, where her passenger, Talytha Elick, 20, was transported with a "serious injury" before being flown to ProMedica Toledo Hospital, according to the patrol. Ms. Elick was listed in fair condition and no information was available about the driver, a ProMedica spokesman said.

The crash occurred about 7:20 a.m. in the intersection of State Rt. 19 and Sandusky County Road 181  in Sandusky County’s Green Creek Township, troopers said.

The car was heading west on Road 181 and the minivan was northbound on Route 19  when the car failed to yield the right of way at a stop sign and drove into the path of the minivan, according to the post. The vehicles then went off the northwest corner of the intersection, with the minivan overturning before coming to rest on its left side.

All of the vehicles' occupants wore seat belts and alcohol was not involved, according to the patrol.

The crash remains under investigation.

Green Springs, a village in Sandusky and Seneca counties, is about 45 miles southeast of Toledo.
