Ridgeville Rescue Receives Help From Archbold And Stryker With Two Crashes

The Ridgeville Township Rescue Squad called for Archbold and Stryker assistance to transport victims of two crashes that occurred within nearly five minutes of each other, Wednesday, Nov. 21.

The first crash was at 11:40 am at the intersection of St. Rt. 66 and US 6, when a minivan, driven by Ora L. Evans, 73, of Brunswick, was traveling south on St. Rt. 66.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol accident report states Evans failed to stop for the stop sign and drove into the intersection, where the minivan was struck by an eastbound semi truck driven by Randy Volschow, 56, Genoa.

Ridgeville Rescue transported Evans and Calian Fairbairn, 14, a passenger in the van, to Henry County Hospital. Archbold Rescue transported a second passenger in the van, Timothy O’Brien, 20, to Henry County Hospital. All three passengers in the van have the same address.

Condition reports on the three were not available.

Volschow was taken to Archbold Hospital by Stryker Rescue, where he was treated and released.

Evans was cited for failure to yield the right of way.

Five minutes later, at 11:45 am, a crash took place at the intersection of St. Rt. 34 and Henry Co. Rd. 24.

The OSHP report on the crash states a pickup truck, driven by Martin A. Nagel, 60, Defiance, with passenger Sharon A. Nagel, 60, same address, was traveling north on Co. Rd. 24.

The report states the pickup started across the St. Rt. 34 intersection and collided with a car, driven by Carol L. Sloan, 73, Stryker, which was traveling west on the highway.

The pickup spun completely twice around and came to rest in the intersection; the Sloan auto drove off the north side of the road and struck a road sign.

Archbold Rescue transported Sharon Nagel to Mercy Hospital of Defiance; Ridgeville Rescue took Sloan to Fulton County Health Center. Both were treated and released.

Nagel was cited for failure to yield the right of way at a stop sign.
