LOGAN COUNTY BEAT: Woman transported by helicopter after crash


A female driver was transported by CareFlight helicopter to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton after a crash about 9:50 p.m. Tuesday on Township Road 30.

Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office report that the single-vehicle crash occurred between U.S. Route 68 and County Road 1. West Liberty Fire Department and Macochee EMS also responded to the scene. Further crash details were not immediately available.

Non-injury crash investigated

Deputies report Tiffany M. Duncan, 23, of Belle Center, did not sustain any injuries following a crash at 4:05 p.m. Tuesday on County Road 111 at County Road 5.

She reportedly was operating an eastbound car when she drove through the intersection and struck a ditch. Damage was heavy to her car.

Deputies are investigating whether the brakes failed on the car at the time of the crash. No citations have yet been issued.

Scam reported

Deputies received a report Tuesday morning from an 80-year-old Logan County resident who said he had been the victim of a scam.

The resident advised that he received a call from a person claiming to be his grandson, and the caller said he needed money to get out of a situation in Mexico. The victim then reportedly wired money as instructed by the caller.

The same caller contacted the victim a second time and requested additional funds. The victim became suspicious and contacted the sheriff’s office.  

Sheriff Andrew J. Smith said his office receives reports of this type of scam periodically, and deputies want residents to be wary of callers asking for funds in this way.
