The 17-year-old girl from Oak Harbor was traveling on Ohio 163 in the eastbound lanes before swerving across the center and running into the Northside of the road. The 17-year-old struck a vehicle that was attempting to turn left into a business and then hit a landscape mound sending her 80 feet into the air.
Fortunately, the team didn't have to wait long for an officer to arrive on the scene as the vehicle landed on the back half of a patrol car. The Ottawa County deputy in the vehicle was one of the people injured in the wreck. The driver of the Mini Cooper convertible whose name has not been released due to her age was also injured.
