Injury accident near downtown

A local driver suffered minor injuries after causing a T-Bone accident near downtown Thursday afternoon around 4:15.

The Bellefontaine Police Department reports that Anthony Johnson, 28, of 204 East Brown Avenue, Bellefontaine, was driving a 2000 Buick LeSabre.

Johnson exited a driveway at 229 West Sandusky Avenue (near North Elm Street) and attempted a left turn to head westbound. He struck an eastbound 2010 Dodge Ram pickup operated by Brandon Rutherford, 27, of 830 Township Road 217, Bellefontaine.

The driver in the right eastbound lane was stopped in traffic, which allowed Johnson to exit. Johnson did not see the pickup in the inside eastbound lane.

Johnson was transported to Mary Rutan Hospital by Bellefontaine Fire and EMS.

He was cited for failure to yield.

Rutherford, who was wearing his seat belt, was not injured.

The car suffered heavy damage while the pickup had moderate damage.
