A Fremont woman remains hospitalized in Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo this week following a two-car crash Friday at Ohio 412 and Ohio 510.

Patricia C. Mills, 73, who lives in the 1000 block of Stillwell Ave., was traveling eastbound on Ohio 412 at about 12:15 p.m., troopers from the Ohio State Highway Patrol's Fremont Post said Wednesday.

Mills allegedly veered her 2003 Honda Civic in front of oncoming traffic while attempting to turn left onto Ohio 510, they said.

Kevin R. Johns, 43, who lives in the 900 block of County Road 128 in Fremont, was driving a 2006 Jeep Liberty westbound on Ohio 412 and struck Mills' vehicle.

Both suffered incapacitating injuries, troopers said.

A medical helicopter transported Mills to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, where she remained Wednesday, a hospital employee said.

The employee told the Register the medical center no longer releases a patient's condition when someone requests it through a phone call, so her condition is unknown.

An ambulance transported Johns to ProMedica Memorial Hospital in Fremont. He was not listed as a patient in the hospital on Wednesday.

In addition to troopers, the Sandusky County Sheriff's Office and Clyde Fire Department responded to the scene Friday.

No charges have been filed yet regarding the crash, and troopers plan to talk with Mills about the incident when she is released from the hospital.

The Register called the Ohio State Highway Patrol's Fremont Post repeatedly the past few days requesting information about the crash, but troopers did not return phone calls until Wednesday.



I am usually not one to bash truck drivers. But I almost took a truck head on at the same intersection last week. As I was traveling on east on Rt 412 and truck coming off of Rt 510 decided to make his WIDE turn into my lane as I was going into and thru the intersection. I completely understand the need for wide turns and that this intersection/area is not normally used for heavy truck traffic, but you also do not have the right of way to make a wide turn into oncoming traffic. I thought with the added traffic from the detour there would be extra LE visable...but I have not seen one in the 4 or 5 trips in 2 weeks to Sandusky on Rt 412. Everyone please just slow down and watch what you are doing.
