Carrie E. King, 43, of Bellefontaine, was transported by Indian Lake EMS to Mary Rutan Hospital for treatment off suspected minor injuries related to a crash Wednesday morning, Sept. 13, in the Riverside Schools parking lot.
Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office report she was operating an eastbound 2001 Toyota Camry about 8:45 a.m. through the parking lot when she traveled off the right side of the road, striking a utility pole, and causing heavy damage to the vehicle. The car was towed from the scene.
Deputies said King’s speed in the school parking lot was estimated at 42 mph and she was cited for reckless operation as a result of the crash. A school resource officer said King had been warned the previous week on Sept. 5 to slow down in the school parking lot during drop off time.
Deputies noted that the utility pole was struck with such force by King’s car that it broke the light off the top and resulted in the concrete base leaning to the east. The driver was wearing her seat belt.
