The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a two-vehicle injury crash that sent three people to the hospital Sunday evening.
Zachary McClellan, 18, of Maumee, Ohio, was driving a 1994 Ford Ranger south on Ohio 4 at 6:20 p.m., when he drove through a red light while crossing over Ohio 2. The truck struck the side of a 2008 Chrysler 300 driven by Kelly Rigoni, 38, of Port Clinton, the patrol reported. Rigoni was exiting Ohio 2 and making a left turn to head north onOhio 4.
Perkins Township EMS took Rigoni to Firelands Regional Medical Center, and she was subsequently airlifted to Cleveland MetroHealth Medical Center, OSHP said. Her injuries were described as non-life threatening.
McClellan and his passenger, Kasey Volpitta, 17, of Whitehouse, Ohio, were taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center for minor injuries, according to the patrol.
Both vehicles sustained disabling damage and were towed from the scene.
McClellan said he was distracted by an object that fell in his vehicle, and alcohol is not a factor, the patrol said.
