The Sandusky post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a two-vehicle crash that occurred at 1:30 p.m. today on Ohio 2 near U.S. 250.

Mary A. Fox, 81, of Sandusky, was driving a 2004 Honda Accord when she entered Ohio 2 westbound from U.S. 250 and then made a U-turn at the top of the ramp and continued eastbound on Ohio 2 in the westbound lanes, troopers said. Fox's car collided head-on with a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox driven by Jaqueline Zupka, 60, of Macedonia, who had entered Ohio 2 westbound from US 250.

Fox was transported to Firelands Regional Medical Center by Perkins Township EMS with incapacitating injuries, troopers said. She was wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash.

Zupka also was transported to Firelands by Perkins Township EMS with minor injuries. She, too, was wearing her seat belt.

Alcohol is not a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.

The westbound lanes of Ohio 2 were closed for approximately one hour.

Assisting agencies included Perkins Township Police Department., Perkins Township Fire and EMS services, Walt’s Towing, Wilson’s Towing and Sandusky Towing.



Another age factor involved !


Maybe she was texting?


Zupka did not enter 2 wb at 250. The accident occurred just east of 250 so she had to have been coming from Huron area.
