Truck veers into bog; Huron woman injured

During an unseasonable rainstorm Thursday a full size pickup truck driven by a Huron woman rolled down a ditch and lodged in a swamp off the east edge of Cedar Point Road.    

Driver Holly Duttera suffered facial injuries and was conscious when rescue squads got there, Sandusky fire Lt. Adam Butler said.

Sandusky paramedics got to there first and waded through knee-deep mud to pry the truck door open.

“They must have just muscled the door open,” Sandusky fire Lt. Adam Butler said. “They didn’t have any tools.”

They put her on a back board and took her to Firelands Regional Medical Center, he said. She remained at the hospital in stable condition as of 6 p.m. Thursday night.

Sandusky police Lt. Robert Vanscoy said the truck was traveling north on Cedar Point Road when it veered off the road to the left. Duttera then overcorrected. The truck came back across the road, went off the right side and plunged into the edge of a swamp, Vanscoy said.

Police cited Duttera for reckless operation and no seat belt.

Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, Vanscoy said.
