Crash Injures Defiance Woman

The State High­way Patrols says a woman was seri­ously injured last Thurs­day evening in a three-vehicle crash in San­dusky County.

Troop­ers say it hap­pened when a car dri­ven by 52 year old Teresa Miller of Defi­ance, head­ing east­bound on U.S. 6, attempted to pass a semi. A west­bound semi was forced to swerve to the right to avoid a col­li­sion with Miller’s vehi­cle.

Police say Miller failed to main­tain con­trol of her vehi­cle while attempt­ing to return to the east­bound lane and was hit by the semi, then bounced into the path of the other semi, and the two col­lided.

Miller was taken by ambu­lance to Mercy St. Vin­cent Med­ical Cen­ter, Toledo, with seri­ous injuries.

The two truck dri­vers were not hurt.

U.S. 6 remained closed in that area for approx­i­mately six hours so that it could be cleaned up.

Accord­ing to troop­ers, alco­hol does not appear to be a fac­tor, but the cause remains under investigation.
