Several motorists were injured over the past couple of days following crashes.

Morgan M. Patton, 18, of 183 Twin Bay Trail, Willard, sustained serious injuries on Thursday morning after she fell asleep while traveling north on Niver Road, went of its right side and struck a ditch. The vehicle overturned and came to rest on its top. Patton was taken to Willard Mercy Hospital, which does not give out patient information.

Two motorists sustained minor injuries in a pair of other crashes.

Arlin G. McCray, 69, of 12 W. Main St., North Fairfield, was taken to Fisher-Titus Medical Center following a crash Thursday afternoon near the intersection of Ohio 20 and Ohio 303. McCray was driving south on Butler Road, approaching the intersection of Ohio 20 and Ohio 303. McCray failed to come to a complete stop, drove past the stop sign and into the path of Samantha M. Larson, 21, of 56 Freun St. Larson struck McCray. McCray was not listed on Wednesday as a patient at Fisher-Titus.

Patience M. Link, 33, of 104 N. Main St., New London, was not transported following an accident early Tuesday. Link was traveling north on Ohio 60, went off the right side of the road, went back across the left side and struck a ditch and tree.

The complete police blotter was published in Thursday's Reflector.

Shut up. You don't know what you're talking about.

ladydye_5

proudwillardresident

Sigh...again...shut up. You don't know what you're talking about

Hereswhatithink

Lol @ proudwillardresident...screen name says enough

brutalyhonest

I wonder if she just finished babysitting in Norwalk...

proudwillardresident

@here'swhatIthinkIknow..yes, I live in Willard, along with doctors, attorneys, teachers and oh, by the way, the parents of an NFL football player. Zip it.

proudwillardresident

I'm sorry, I forgot... factory workers that work there butts off every day, homemakers that make their children their life, business executives, and the list goes on. Unfortunately, these people don't make the newspaper. And people like you are too stupid to figure that out. Would it help if I said please shut up?

Hereswhatithink

Why would you come in here and start telling people to "shut up". Sounds to me like you are a child, or very immature adult. Comments are for people to post opinions.

proudwillardresident

Oh I don't know, maybe it's because a teenager was in a terrible car crash and instead of condolences, idiots on here have to post crap. Answer your question?

proudwillardresident

I'm fed up with you damn morons.

Hereswhatithink

and she was treated and released, and also you keep coming back. and we are the morons? Noone ever said that she was an idiot, shes an 18 year old girl. Never said anything about the condition she was in. Feel bad for her for wrecking her vehicle, and glad she wasnt hurt. But I never thought of saying, "Shut up" or telling other commenters they were stupid.

Enough82

Wow glad you know everything that happened since she wasn't treated and released and she was hurt!

Hereswhatithink

she hurt her wrist, and now bragging that now she gets a new car??? I know Morgan, and that would be the last of my worries is "now I get a new car!" do feel sorry for her, sorry for anyone that is in an automobile accident. but even if I didnt agree, would not start yelling Shut up to anyone that did not agree or share my opinion. Kids these days

Enough82

You don't know her that well because she has a heck a lot more than a hurt wrist and she is not getting a new car! Well, opinions are like assholes....everybody has one.

proudwillardresident

My "opinion" is you need to shut up.

luvblues2

Yes, it's highly obvious that proudwillardresident is a teen. Everyone else is required to "shut up" about what was given to us, while she rants and raves as a drama queen.

proudwillardresident

No. just dont assume she was texting and don't dump on Willard. If you do, you'll have to deal with my opinion too. Have a crappy day, turd.

luvblues2

I didn't assume anything, proudwillardresident. But I have raised two girls to be productive late 20 something girls as well as one boy who is 30 something. I know the temperament. Scream and yell about anything you disagree with.

proudwillardresident

I have 3 kids in high school and they do not scream and yell at me.

luvblues2

Then, you lie. There is no such thing as a non-dysfunctional family.

Enough82

Instead of all the smart as* comments why dont people pray for the ones involved in the accidents and the families that had to go through this!

proudwillardresident

I believe I have done that. That's exactly what my original point was. But these people will attack common sense and compassion at every turn. Fed up.

Enough82

You are the only one that has shown any compassion! Amazes me when people can be so cruel when someones child was hurt!

luvblues2

Yeah, right. Everything is like "Leave it to Beaver".
