GROTON TOWNSHIP A two-vehicle injury crash in this township remains under investigation by the Sandusky post of the state Highway Patrol.
The two drivers, Gus Secor, 48, of Willard, and Roy Gardner, 56, of Huron, reported being injured, but both men refused treatment at the scene of the Thursday evening crash at the intersection of Ohio 99 and Harris Road.
A LifeFlight helicopter transported Secor's passenger, Rich Elmlinger, 70, of Willard, to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo with serious injuries. A hospital spokeswoman said Elmlinger was in fair condition Friday night, an upgrade from when the patrol determined he was in stable condition Thursday.
Gardner, who was eastbound on Harris Road, failed to yield from the Ohio 99 stop sign and was hit by Secor, who was heading south on Ohio 99, troopers said. Both vehicles stopped off the southwest corner of the intersection.
