Toledo trooper injured in collision


An Ohio Highway Patrol trooper suffered minor injuries in a collision early Saturday in Sylvania Township that the patrol says involved a drunken driver.

Trooper Nicholas J. Konrad, 25, of Toledo was taken to ProMedica Toledo Hospital for treatment following the 1:10 a.m. collision at Central Avenue and Reynolds Road, according to the report.

Trooper Konrad, assigned to the patrol’s Toledo post, was eastbound on Central when a car driven by Michelle Fugate, 42, of Toledo turned left from westbound Central toward Reynolds and entered his path.

Mrs. Fugate refused treatment at the scene, troopers said. 

The report said the crash remained under investigation Saturday, but troopers said alcohol was a factor.
