Paul E. Brown, 40, of Richwood, reportedly was operating a southbound semi tractor-trailer when he struck the rear of a car operated by Dennis Hall, 70, of Chaplin, Ky., that had slowed for vehicles on the side of the road.

Mr. Hall was treated at the scene by Bellefontaine EMS personnel for minor injuries. He was not transported for additional medical treatment. Mr. Brown did not report any injuries.

The car sustained moderate damage. The semi driver was cited for failure to maintain assured clear distance ahead.
