Wanda B. Fetters, 79, was pronounced dead at the scene of a two-vehicle crash about 4:15 p.m. on County Road 10 at Township Road 179, troopers of the Marysville Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol report.
Troopers said Ms. Fetters was driving a southbound car on T.R. 179 when her vehicle failed to stop at the intersection and traveled into the path of a northwest bound pickup truck on C.R. 10. The pickup then struck the driver’s side of the Fetters’ car.
The impact forced the vehicles off the south side of C.R. 10, where the car struck a tree and the pickup came to rest near the road.
The truck’s driver, Marvin C. Tuente, 58, of Maria Stein, reportedly was not injured.
Troopers were assisted by Bellefontaine Fire and EMS, Tri-Valley EMS and the Logan County Sheriff's Office.
The drivers each were wearing seat belts, troopers said. Alcohol and/or drugs are not suspected as factors.
Damage to the vehicles was heavy.
Ms. Fetters served as a Mary Rutan Hospital Guild volunteer for several years and won the RSVP Volunteer of the Year award in 2012 for logging 348 hours of volunteer service.
The crash remains under investigation.
