Unusual accidents cause injuries
  Celina Police investigated a pair of unusual accidents in recent days - one involving a pedestrian in a drive-thru lane at a fast food restaurant and the other involving a wife who drove over her husband's foot.
Randal C. Norris, 53, 1121/2 N. Main St., Celina, was injured as he walked in a southwesterly direction across the drive-thru lane at Burger King, 209 E. Market St. Todd L. Belton, 43, 503 N. Sugar St., Celina, the driver of a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee, said he failed to see Norris due to the man's dark clothing.
Reports indicate Belton was proceeding through the drive-thru lane at the time.
Norris was taken by ambulance to Mercer County Community Hospital in Coldwater, where he was treated then released.
The report indicated light damage to the vehicle.
• An apparent disagreement preceded an accident at 2:14 p.m. May 22 on East Livingston Street at Lakeview Drive.
Samassi Sylla, 40, 440 Touvelle St., Lot 9, Celina, apparently got out of the 1996 Ford Taurus driven by his 27-year-old wife Vivian J. Sylla who tried to get him back into the vehicle.
Vivian Sylla had been attempting a right turn onto Lakeview Drive when she pulled forward. She reportedly forgot the wheels were turned and drove over her husband's left foot.
An ambulance responded to the scene but the husband refused treatment or transport.
Police cited the woman for failure to yield to a pedestrian.
