A pedestrian sustained serious injuries after being hit by a car Tuesday.
Grant A. Dauch, 22, of New London, was standing in the southbound lane of Hartland Center Road, attempting to stop traffic for a company off-loading construction equipment at the time of the accident at 7:35 p.m. The incident happened on Hartland Center Road north of U.S. 20 in Townsend Township.
Preliminary indications show Dauch wasn’t wearing reflective clothing and didn’t have traffic control equipment, said troopers with the state Highway Patrol. The roadway was dark and not lighted.
Crystal M. Hall, 34, of Amherst, was driving southbound in a 2011 Ford Focus and hit Dauch, who was thrown off the west side of Hartland Center Road, troopers said.
Citizens Ambulance transported Dauch from the scene to Fisher-Titus Medical Center with serious injuries. A LifeFlight helicopter later flew him to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo. A hospital spokeswoman said nobody named Dauch was listed as a patient as of Wednesday morning.
Hall wasn’t injured and was wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash. The crash remains under investigation.
The Huron County Sheriff’s Office, Townsend Township Volunteer Fire Department and Citizens Ambulance Service assisted troopers at the scene.
