Two Wednesday afternoon accidents resulted in two fatalities in Mercer County. R. . .

CELINA - A bicyclist was killed after colliding with a car as he crossed St. Anthony Road on the Celina-Coldwater Bike Path on Wednesday afternoon.
Nicholas J. Hemmelgarn, 67, Coldwater, was southbound on the bike path at about 4 p.m., when he reportedly failed to yield to traffic on St. Anthony Road.
He was struck by a westbound 2001 Ford sedan driven by Wallace J. McGough, 32, Celina, according to a news release from the Mercer County Sheriff's Office. McGough reportedly was not injured.
Hemmelgarn reportedly was taken from the scene by members of the Coldwater Emergency Medical Services to Mercer County Community Hospital in Coldwater, where he was pronounced dead.
