Two injured in four-vehicle crash

By Shelley Grieshop
A 24-year-old Rockford woman suffered serious injuries when her van was struck in the rear and pushed into three other vehicles in an accident at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday on U.S. 127 at state Route 707.
Katie Ralston, 12375 Smith Road, was taken to St. Rita's Medical Center, Lima, where she remains in serious condition.
The driver who struck her vehicle, Darin Feltz, 24, 2052 Golfview Drive, Celina, was taken to Joint Township District Memorial Hospital, St. Marys. No information was available for his condition due to federal privacy regulations.
The crash involved Feltz's 2006 Hyundai Tucson, Ralston's 1993 Dodge Caravan, a 1991 Hyundai Excel driven by William Young, 28, 106 E. Walnut St., Mendon, and an International semitrailer driven by Ronald Smith, 51, of Kalida.
The report from the Wapakoneta post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said Feltz was driving south on U.S. 127 when he drove his SUV into the rear of Ralston's van. The impact pushed the van into Young's car and into the path of the northbound semitrailer, the report noted.
Severe damage was reported to all vehicles except Young's car, which sustained light damage. A citation was not listed.
