Two people were taken to Community Hospitals & Wellness Centers-Bryan, Friday, Aug. 20, following a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of St. Rt. 34 and Henry Co. Rd. 24 at 11:49 am.

Preliminary information from the Henry County Sheriff Department states a sport-utility vehicle driven by Alan Abair, 66, Cromwell, Ind., was traveling east on the highway. A second SUV, driven by Karleigh Rae Hope, 17, rural Liberty Center, was traveling south on Co. Rd. 24.

The HCSD report states Hope failed to yield, drove into the intersection, and they collided.

Abair was taken to CHWC by Archbold Rescue with a suspected minor injury, as was a second passenger in Abair’s SUV, Elvina K. Abair, 49, same address, also with a suspected minor injury.

Passengers in Hope’s SUV, Andrew Vollmar, 9, and Grayson Vollmar, 6, all of the same Liberty Center address, were not injured.

Deputies cited Hope for failure to yield the right-ofway.
