A woman sustained serious injuries in a two-vehicle crash in Hopewell Township Saturday morning.
Trooper Jim Van Camp of the Fremont post of State Highway Patrol said Ruth L. Childers, 87, of Fostoria, was taken by Life Flight from the scene of the accident at SR 18 and CR 26 to University of Toledo Medical Center.
Her condition was not available from the hospital Saturday evening. Van Camp said she had serious injuries.

Childers was a passenger in a Ford Windstar van driven by her son, Carl C. Berger, 63, of Tiffin. Berger and his wife, Sandy L. Berger, 61, who was a front-seat passenger, were taken to Mercy Tiffin Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Van Camp said.
Van Camp said a Buick Lucerne car driven by Richard A. Haugh, 79, of Tiffin, was on CR 26 and pulled out in front of the van, which had been driving on SR 18. The car struck the van on the right side, he said.
"(It) spun it around, and (the van) overturned," he said.
Rescue personnel work at the scene of a two-vehicle crash that occurred at SR 18 and CR 26 in Hopewell Township Saturday morning.
Van Camp said he did not know whether Haugh's vehicle had stopped at the stop sign because he received conflicting stories.
He estimated the van rolled one and a half times and said it came to rest on its right side. The rescue crew had to cut off the top of the van to remove people from it, he said.
It sounded like everyone was wearing a seat belt, and it did not appear alcohol and speed were factors in the crash, Van Camp said.
Haugh, who was cited with failure to yield from a stop sign, was checked at the scene and was not injured, he said.
A Seneca County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman said personnel from Bascom fire and EMS, the Echo unit, Life Flight, the sheriff's office, State Highway Patrol and Tiffin EMS responded to the crash, which was reported at 10:48 a.m.
