A minivan directly crashed in a car and killed two women. The accident happened on Tuesday on State Rt. 105 near Elmore (which is about 20 miles southeast of Toledo). The Ohio State Highway Patrol said that a teenage girl passenger was also injured in the crash.
Fifty-five-year-old Wendy Suter from Fremont was driving the car, and died at the scene in Ottawa County’s Harris Township, according to the patrol’s Sandusky post.
Fifty-year-old Sheri Walters from Millbury, who was driving the minivan, had severe injuries and was transported to Mercy Health-St. Vincent Medical Center, where she later died, the patrol reported.
A seventeen-year-old passenger in the minivan, a girl whose name was not released, was injured and also transported to St. Vincent. Her injuries were considered non-life-threatening.
Suter was going north on Route 105 early in the morning, around 8:15 a.m. when she crossed the center line and drove into the way of the minivan. It is unknown why she did that. The minivan was going southbound on the road.
The patrol informed that all of the involved in the accident were wearing seat belts when the accident happened.
The police continue investigating the collision.
