Rear-end collision closes U.S. Route 68


Both motorists refused treatment at the scene of a two-car crash that occurred about 8 a.m. today in the 4000 block of U.S. Route 68, just north of County Road 57. Both vehicles reportedly were southbound when a deer crossing the road prompted a sport-utility vehicle to stop abruptly and it was rear-ended by a trailing car. Damage was heavy to both vehicles. Huntsville and Bellefontaine Fire and EMS responded. Deputies from the Logan County Sheriff’s Office are investigating. (EXAMINER PHOTO | NATE SMITH)
