Rachel B. Hostetler, 16, of West Liberty, was transported to Mary Rutan Hospital following a crash Monday afternoon on U.S. Route 68 just south of the city limits.

Troopers of the Marysville Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol report she was operating a northbound vehicle about 4:15 p.m. that had slowed for a school bus when she was struck from behind by a northbound vehicle operated by Lucinda I. Owens, 66, of Springfield. The impact pushed Rachel’s vehicle off the roadway and she overcorrected and went back onto the road, facing in the opposite direction of travel.

Ms. Owens and her passenger did not report any injuries. She was cited for failure to maintain assured clear distance ahead.
