Mary Grime, 78, rural Archbold, was treated and released at the Fulton County Health Center, after her car was struck by a trailer that came unhitched from a pickup.

The Fulton County Sheriff Department report states Clair Ham, 63, rural Delta, was driving a pickup truck, owned by Miller Brothers Construction, Archbold, south on North Defi- ance Street, about three-tenths of a mile north of Co. Rd. D. At the same time, Grime was driving her car north.

The report states the singleaxle landscaping-style trailer became unhitched from the truck, went left of center, and struck Grime’s auto, which came to rest in the ditch on the east side of the highway.

Because the impact occurred east of the center of North Defiance Street, the crash technically occurred outside the Archbold village limits, putting it in the sheriff department’s jurisdiction.

Archbold Rescue responded to the scene, and transported Grime to FCHC.

Deputies cited Ham for an insecure load.
