SANDUSKY

A 24-year-old woman was taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center on Thursday at about 12:30 p.m. after the Ford Taurus she was driving struck a 2007 Dodge Charger that was parked in the 1600 block of Milan Road in Sandusky, firefighters there said.    

The woman didn’t appear to suffer any major injuries, said Sandusky fire Capt. Jim Green, but she was transported to the hospital as a precaution. There were no occupants in the Dodge Charger, the owner of which was inside a hair salon near the accident scene.  

The Taurus scraped the rear side of the Charger, which ruptured a fuel line in the Charger and resulted in about 13 gallons of gas spilling into the road, Green said. Firefighters used absorbent pads to soak up the spilled fuel.

About one block of Milan Road was closed near the accident scene from about 12:30 to 1:45 p.m.
