Tom Agler, 60, of Spencerville, was operating a westbound tractor-trailer hauling a piece of heavy machinery when he reportedly rear-ended another westbound vehicle operated by Judith Ryan, 67, of Harod. Huntsville EMS responded to the scene, but no one was taken to the hospital. Mr. Agler was cited for failure to maintain assured clear distance ahead. Washington Township police assisted. The Ryan vehicle had to be towed from the scene. The tractor-trailer sustained minor damage. (EXAMINER PHOTO | NATE SMITH)
