Teens hurt in accident

Two youths were injured in a single-vehicle accident on North TR 21 Thursday morning.

Trooper Allison Young of the Fremont post of State Highway Patrol said Alexis Durst, 16, of Arcadia, was traveling south on North TR 21 in a 2000 Chevrolet Trailblazer with Cacey Sussang, 17, of Tiffin. Durst drove off the left side of the road, came back on the road, overcorrected and went back off the left side of the road and struck a concrete culvert and overturned, she said.

Young said Durst and Sussang were transported to ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Durst was cited with failure to control, she said.

Durst was wearing a seatbelt, but Sussang was not, Young said.

The accident was reported at 11:57 a.m. and Bascom EMS, Bascom Joint Fire District, the Echo unit and State Highway Patrol responded to the scene.
