Joshua Collins, 18, Adrian, Mich., received a citation for failure to control after the pickup truck he was driving struck a utility pole in the 1000 block of North Defiance Street about 5:35 pm, Saturday, July 21.

Because the accident took place on the east side of North Defiance Street, it was technically outside the village limits; as a result, the Fulton County Sheriff Department handled the report.

The FCSD report states Collins was driving north on N. Defiance Street when the vehicle went off the right side of the roadway and struck the utility pole. The truck then came to rest in the field.

Archbold Rescue was called to the scene, but Collins was not transported.
