Crash Sends Two To The Hospital


Two people are in the hospital after a three-vehicle crash near Chillicothe.  

The Highway Patrol says 40-year-old Ebony Perkins was driving an SUV on U.S. 23 near Main Street when she moved into the center lane and hit a car driven by 57-year-old James Hamblin of Wellston.  

The impact caused Hamblin to drive off the left side of the road and Perkins to veer into the right lane, where she struck a pickup driven by 73-year-old Joseph Pennington of Waverly.  Perkins then drove off the right side of the road and overturned.  

Perkins and a passenger from one of the vehicles are in the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
