Dusk is often the catalyst for accidents, and so was the case Sunday night when two cars violently collided in Danbury Township.
A driver was turning onto East Harbor Road, Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers said, about a quarter-mile west of Big Boppers Restaurant before it got "T-boned".
Two cars and five teens were involved in the wreck, troopers said, as two of the teens experienced non-life-threatening injuries. One had concussion-like symptoms, trooper Andrew Geer said Sunday night.
The rest came away without injuries.
"Sunset was (9:06 p.m.) and the crash occurred around (9:09 p.m.)," Geer said.
The driver of a Dodge Stratus attempted to turn westbound on East Harbor Road from Sunnydale Drive. Afterwards, the driver said he didn't see anyone coming until he was already pulling out and a Ford Focus was just 15 feet away, Geer said.
The driver of the Ford did not have his headlights on, Geer said, contributing to why the driver of the Dodge did not see him.
Both drivers were cited, troopers said, though their names were not immediately available.
Both cars experienced significant damage and were towed from the scene, troopers said.
Danbury Township fire and EMS assisted along with Danbury Township police.
