Two adults and a 5-year-old girl were transported by squad to Mary Rutan Hospital for non-incapacitating injuries sustained in a crash Saturday morning during winter weather conditions.

Troopers of the Marysville Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol report Dustin Faber, 34, of West Mansfield, was operating an eastbound car on State Route 47 just west of West Mansfield about 10:15 a.m. when he failed to negotiate a curve and overcorrected. His vehicle then slid and went off the left side of the road, overturned and struck a mailbox.

Mr. Faber, along with passengers Barbara Faber, 32, and Gracie Taylor, 5, each was transported by Bokescreek and Perry Township squads to the hospital. Two other passengers, ages 10 and 12, were not injured.

All occupants were wearing their seat belts, troopers report. Mr. Faber was cited for failure to control.

• Kacey R. Huffman, 20, of East Liberty, was cited for failure to maintain control following a one-vehicle, non-injury crash about 6:45 a.m. Saturday on State Route 287 near County Road 158 just outside Middleburg.

Troopers report the driver, who was wearing a seat belt, was traveling northbound on S.R. 287, lost control and went off the left side of the road where it struck a utility pole.

The car was towed from the scene. A separate non-injury crash occurred in approximately the same location about 5:30 a.m. Friday.
