 UPDATE: 5 injured in C.R. 18 crash

A total of five people sustained minor injuries in a previously reported two-vehicle crash about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday on County Road 18 at Township Road 200, according to deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office.

Cody Plikington, 19, of Lakeview, was operating a car that stopped at a stop sign at Township Road 216. He attempted to cross C.R. 18 to T.R. 200 and drove into the path of a northbound minivan operated by Ronald E. Courter II, 40, of Quincy. 

The minivan then went off the right side of the roadway, and the impact also spun the car around and it also drove off C.R. 18. 

Mr. Plikington was transported by Macochee squad to Mary Rutan Hospital for minor visible injuries. His passengers, Cheryl A. James, 21, and Damian Deyo, 18, both of Bellefontaine, each was transported by Bellefontaine squad to Mary Rutan Hospital. 

Mr. Courter did not report any injuries. Two occupants in his vehicle, Sharilyn S. Courter, 40, and Cayman Courter, 5, each was transported by Bellefontaine squad to Mary Rutan Hospital. 

Damage was severe to both vehicles. Deputies report that all occupants were wearing their seat belts. 

Mr. Plikington was cited for failure to yield the right of way at a stop sign. 

Inmates charged after incident






Two Logan County Jail inmates, Monty S. Jeanneret, 20, of 533 Fairview Ave., Russells Point, and Christopher S. Haynes, 19, of 10227 County Road 54, Lewistown, each was charged after they allegedly injured a fellow inmate by throwing a cup of hot water on him. 

A corrections officer who was stationed in central control reportedly observed Mr. Jeanneret and Mr. Haynes acting in a suspicious manner. The pair allegedly went to an upstairs bathroom, and one inmate had an item in his hand. 

One of the inmates crouched down and the other individual held open a door to the bathroom. A short time later, the pair ran out of the bathroom area laughing. 

Then an inmate who had been showering, JaJuan D. James, 19, of Bellefontaine, exited the bathroom area holding his chest. 

Mr. James was treated for redness and peeling skin on his chest. 

Corrections officers later learned that Mr. James had been injured when a cup of water heated up in a microwave in the cell block by Mr. Jeanneret and Mr. Haynes had been dumped on him.

Mr. Jeanneret was charged with felonious assault, while Mr. Haynes was charged with complicity to felonious assault.
