A three-vehicle pileup Saturday morning on Ohio 281, in Richland Township, Defiance County, has left one man critically injured.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol says it happened at 3:45 a.m. Saturday, when 35 year old Ronald Nash of Napoleon, was westbound on Ohio 281 in a Ford Taurus around mile post 281, when his vehicle ran into the rear of a westbound Ford van driven by 41 year old Richard Bishop of Montpelier.
Nash’s vehicle then slid into the other westbound lane, and slammed into the rear of a tractor-trailer driven by 60 year old Nicholas Steffel of Sherwood.
Nash was taken to Defiance Mercy Hospital, then flown by air ambulance to Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne.
Bishop was taken to Defiance Mercy Hospital, where he was treated and released.
Steffel was treated at the scene.
The crash remains under investigation today.
