Road Closed Due to Injury Crash

The intersection at Ohio 98 and Marion-Edison Road was closed for more than half an hour yesterday around 7:39 am, due to an injury crash.

A 1992 Honda Accord driven by David Dickerson was heading west on Marion-Edison Road. . Dickerson failed to yield at a stop sign and struck a 2002 Chevy Cavalier driven south by Amanda Beechum.

The side-impact collision injured Beechum and her two children as they were on their way to school. The children, both younger than 10, sustained minor injuries. All involved were wearing seat belts at the time of the collision. All three were taken to Marion General Hospital, where they were released after treatment. Dickerson was not injured in the accident.

The road reopened around 8:30 a.m.
