Three people injured in Monroeville accident

MONROEVILLE North Central EMS transported three people to Fisher-Titus Medical Center with minor injuries after a two-vehicle accident Wednesday afternoon near the Monroeville village limits. Gerald J. Link, 53, of 5557 Edmunds Road, Bellevue, was heading west on U.S. 20 when he went left of center and sideswiped the vehicle driven by Monroeville resident Melissa R. Hollada, 28, of 66 S. Main St. about 3:45 p.m. Link's car then went off the left side of the road and slid into Hillside Park, Monroeville Police Sgt. Frank Gleason said. Hollada's two girls, ages 1 and 2, were in the vehicle. The mother, her older daughter and Link all went to the hospital with minor injuries, while the youngest girl was not hurt and went home with her father. "It's a good thing both children were in child restraints," the officer said.
