Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a two-vehicle injury crash about 8:40 p.m. Saturday on U.S. Route 68 at County Road 57.
Michael J. Lingard, 55, of Ontario, Canada, reportedly was operating a northbound semi tractor-trailer when he attempted to pass a northbound car operated by Michael Gammell, 25, of Belle Center, that had slowed to make a turn.
The semi then struck the car as it started to turn left.
Both drivers were transported by squad to Mary Rutan Hospital for non-incapacitating injuries.
The semi sustained moderate damage and the car sustained heavy damage. Mr. Lingard was cited for improper passing.
