Two hurt in hit-skip accident

Two people were taken to the hospital after a hit-skip accident Wednesday night at Circular and South Washington streets.

Tiffin Police Chief Fred Stevens said Mary Sherwood, 54, of Tiffin, and her passenger Justin Rentz, 24, of Tiffin, were transported to Mercy Tiffin Hospital after their vehicle was struck by a silver vehicle at the intersection around 8 p.m.

The vehicle, which was driven from the scene, was described by witnesses as a Pontiac Firebird or a Camaro driven by a woman who may have been intoxicated. As the vehicle was being driven away, it ran over a curb and struck a tree, Stevens said. It sustained heavy front-end damage.

The Fostoria Police Department, the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office and the State Highway Patrol were contacted to help locate the vehicle, Stevens said. As of Thursday afternoon, it had not been found.
