3 Liberty City Residents Hurt in Two Accidents

A Lib­erty Cen­ter man work­ing at a con­struc­tion site on the I-475 Bridge over the Maumee River was injured when struck by a hit and run dri­ver. It hap­pened south­bound near mile marker 4. 40 year-old Joshua Ben­son was wear­ing a reflec­tive vest that should have made him vis­i­ble in the active con­struc­tion zone. The dri­ver of the Chevy Blazer that struck him did not stop and the car was later found in Swan­ton and the dri­ver iden­ti­fied as 36 year-old Jamie Luce. Alco­hol is believed to be a factor.

Two other Lib­erty Cen­ter res­i­dents were also hurt in a two car crash in Henry County. A Las Vegas man failed to stop at the inter­sec­tion of Henry County Road V and 4A and drove into the path of a car dri­ven by 68 year-old Bon­nie Plass­man. Plass­man and pas­sen­ger 80 year-old Vic­tory Pass­man were taken to a hos­pi­tal. The other dri­ver wasn’t hurt. Hap­pened Sun­day afternoon.
