Accidents reported in county

The Ohio State Highway Patrol responded to three separate accidents on Adams County roadways on Monday, Feb. 8.

In the early afternoon two women were transported to the Adams County Regional Medical Center following an accident on White Oak Road near Peebles.

First responders were called to the scene at approximately 2:05 p.m. in the afternoon.

According to Ohio State Highway Patrolman Josh Hunter, Lynn Fitzpatrick, age 60, of West Union, was backing out of a private driveway onto White Oak Road when her 1998 Ford Taurus was struck by a red Chevy Blazer.

Trooper Hunter said the 2001 Blazer, operated by Nancy Volk, age 54, of Blue Creek, struck Fitzpatrck’s car after exiting a hill crest. It then left the road way and struck a fence.

Both women received incapacitating injuries and were transported to the hospital by the West Union Life Squad.

Fitzpatrick was cited for failure to yield to an oncoming vehicle.

Less than two hours later at 3:25 p.m., the State Patrol responded to a second accident near West Union.

Trooper Kyle Klontz reported that a blue 1984 Chevrolet El Camino driven by a 17- year old from Peebles was traveling north on Logans Lane when it traveled off the left side of the roadway and struck a tree.

A minor passenger was also in the car. Neither suffered serious injury. The driver was charged with operating a vehicle without reasonable control.

Later in the day a driver escaped serious injury when the truck he was driving overturned. First responders arrived at the accident scene on State Route 41 at 6:35 p.m.

According to Ohio State Patrol Trooper Donnie Edgington, the 2006 Freight Liner semi truck driven by Silvero Diaz-Amaya, 60, of El Paso, Texas was eastbound on SR 41. The driver attempted an improper lane change and lost control of the truck which traveled off the right side of the roadway before overturning.

Diaz-Amaya was cited for operating a vehicle without reasonable control.
