CRASH IN SHERWOOD

A three vehi­cle crash in Sher­wood Mon­day morn­ing.

The Ohio State High­way Patrol at Defi­ance says a man named Joe Plum­mer was dri­ving a Dodge pickup east on Ohio 18 at 7:20 a.m. as 47 year old Fred Kreiner of Wauseon was dri­ving a Ford F-350 south on U.S. 127, haul­ing a trailer loaded with three other vehi­cles.

56 year old David Phares of New Carlisle was dri­ving a tractor-trailer north on U.S. 127.

Plum­mer report­edly ran a stop sign at the inter­sec­tion. Kreiner’s Ford ran into Plummer’s Dodge on the driver’s side and pushed it in front of Phare’s rig.

Phares’ trailer broke loose on impact and hit a util­ity pole.

One of the vehi­cles on Kreiner’s trailer broke loose dur­ing the first impact and ran over the top of his F-350. The High­way Patrol says the inter­sec­tion was closed for an hour as crews cleaned up the mess.

Plum­mer was flown to Parkview Hos­pi­tal in Fort Wayne where he was treated and released.

Kreiner and Phares were not injured.
