The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a three-car injury crash on U.S. 6 near milepost 4 in Madison Township, Sandusky County.
The accident occurred at 6:18 p.m. Thursday.
Tereasa M. Miller, 52, of Defiance, sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to Saint Vincent’s Hospital by Gibsonburg EMS.
Miller, who was eastbound in a 2011 Chevy Aveo, attempted to pass a 2002 Freightliner semi-truck, the Patrol said, causing a westbound 2013 Mack truck to swerve and resulting in Miller's compact car colliding with both other vehicles.
The semi-truck drivers were not injured.
The crash remains under investigation and alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
The accident caused U.S. 6 to be closed for about six hours before all the vehicles and debris were able to be removed from the roadway. Sandusky County ODOT set up detours to re-route traffic.
