The Norwalk post of the state Highway Patrol is investigating a two-vehicle crash that sent one driver to the hospital.

Michael B. Holden, 27, whose address wasn't provided, was in fair condition Friday at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo, a hospital spokeswoman said.

A LifeFlight helicopter flew Holden, whom troopers said wasn't wearing his seat belt, from the site of the Ohio 162 crash in Norwich Township. The accident happened about 7:15 p.m. Thursday.

The other driver, Republic resident Christopher P. Conley, 28, wasn't injured.

Conley was northbound in a 2000 Chevrolet 3500 pickup truck when he attempted to turn left onto Ohio 162 at the North Greenfield Road intersection. Holden, who was southbound in a 1995 Honda Civic on Section Line Road 30, hit the truck as it turned left at the intersection, troopers said.

Both vehicles sustained heavy, disabling damage and were towed by Wilcox and Clark Brothers towing services.

The crash is still under investigation and alcohol isn't suspected at this time.

Assisting agencies included Willard Fire & Rescue and St. Vincent's LifeFlight.
