From Toledo Blade

VAN WERT, Ohio -- Three people were injured Saturday, at least one seriously, when two vehicles collided at State Rt. 116 and Ringwald Road in Van Wert County’s Ridge Township.

Troopers at the Van Wert post of the Ohio Highway Patrol said that Morgan Pugh, 17, of Venedocia, Ohio, was southbound on Ringwald about 6 p.m. when her vehicle failed to yield to a vehicle driven by Eileen Manken, 56, of Van Wert, which was eastbound on Route 116.

The Manken vehicle was struck on the right side, troopers said. Both vehicles traveled off the southeast corner of the intersection, struck several signs, and rolled several times before stopping in a field.

The Van Wert and Middle Point fire departments freed Ms. Manken from her vehicle. She and her front passenger, Charles Johnson, of Van Wert, were taken to Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne, Ind. A hospital spokesman said there were no conditions for patients by those names.

Ms. Pugh was taken to Van Wert Hospital and later flown by medical helicopter to Parkview, where she was listed in serious condition late Saturday.

The crash remains under investigation.

I was wondering that as well and I think it might have been. Ms. Manken was a 5th grade teacher at one of the elementary schools and Mr J was also a teacher in the Jr High and High school. I really hope everyone is ok! They were both great teachers.

I heard Mr. Johnson was released. He was a teacher and now if I'm not mistaken a bus driver. Also Mrs. Manken teaches at the Goedde building and I have not heard about her condition yet.

I think he may have moved to Junior High when they stopped teaching driver's ed as a high school class (yes, I am old...they really used to do that). And I think he was always a bus driver, but he's the same guy.

She is in Parkview in serious, but stable, condition. My heart and prayers go out to her as well; this must be so much to deal with at such a young age.

It's really awesome that for ONCE Topix is offering positive comments and care/concern statements for people. That's how it should always be. May God send his angels to comfort all those impacted by this tragedy.
