A 4-year-old boy who suffered serious injuries during a two-vehicle crash has been released from a Toledo hospital. His sister remains hospitalized.

Tryston Mahan, of Oak Harbor, was released from Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center late Sunday night, said Lt. Douglas Hamman, of the state Highway Patrol's Norwalk post.

A LifeFlight helicopter flew the child from the scene of the accident, which occurred at 2:25 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of U.S. 20 and Halfway Road.

His 10-year-old sister, Sierra Mahan, was flown to St. Vincent in a second medical helicopter after being ejected from the Chevrolet Trailblazer being driven by Robert Mahan, 39.

The girl, who was not wearing her seat belt, was listed in stable condition, Hamman said.

The other driver, Norwalk resident Harry Shaw, 70, of 44 W. Elm St., was charged with failure to yield, Hamman said.

"Further charges are pending," the Norwalk post commander added.

Shaw was driving a Chevrolet Impala north on Halfway Road when he failed to yield at the U.S. 20 intersection and collided with the Trailblazer, troopers said.

Shaw wasn't injured. His passenger, Maryanna Shaw, 76, of Norwalk, suffered minor injuries and was transported by North Central EMS to Fisher-Titus Medical Center. Both people wore seatbelts.

Also in Mahan's truck were Gage Mahan, 12, of Oak Harbor, and Misty Olar, 37, of Mansfield. Troopers said Gage Mahan wasn't injured while Olar had minor injuries.
