 Tiffin Police Department and Tiffin Fire Rescue Division personnel work at the scene of an accident on North Washington Street Tuesday afternoon.

North Washington Street temporarily was blocked after a two-vehicle accident under the viaduct Tuesday afternoon.

Officer Scott McDole of Tiffin Police Department said Deann K. Fritz, 53, of Tiffin, was driving a 2013 GMC Terrain, and Bradley J.D. Stuchel, 17, of Tiffin, was driving a 1994 Dodge Shadow.

They were northbound on North Washington Street.

McDole said Stuchel glanced down and looked up, and it was too late. His vehicle struck the GMC in the rear, pushing it forward a few feet, he said.

Stuchel was cited with assured clear distance ahead.

McDole said Fritz and Stuchel were wearing seatbelts. They were checked at the scene by Tiffin Fire Rescue Division and were not transported to a hospital, he said.

The accident occurred about 3:10 p.m.
