An accident on State Route 146 sends one person to the hospital Monday morning.

Despite the appearance of the Pontiac Sunfire with it’s dented passenger side, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said the female driver of suffered only minor injuries following the accident.

"We have one vehicle that was trying to turn into the Duke and Duchess and was struck on the right side by a westbound pick up truck," said Trooper Wes Archer from the state highway patrol.

Trooper Archer said it’s important that people pay attention when driving their vehicles.

"I think she was trying to look for a place to pull in here and she probably just wasn’t paying attention and wasn’t noticing the westbound pick up," said Trooper Archer.

The driver of the Pontiac was conscious when she left the scene and was transported to Genesis Good Samaritan. The accident remains under investigation.
