MILAN — A man was taken to the hospital Sunday afternoon after sustaining injuries in a crash blamed on diabetic shock.

The state Highway Patrol is investigating the accident that occurred about 2:30 p.m. on U.S. 250 between Ohio 113 (Erie County) and Lais Road (Huron County) in Milan Township.

Will North, of Sandusky, was driving south when he began to have a “diabetic incident,” troopers said. North tried stopping and pulling off to the side of the road while he was still in Erie County, but was unable to do so until he crossed the county line, according to troopers. Troopers said North was traveling at a low rate of speed.

North reportedly went into diabetic shock and was “all over the road” before striking a truck that was in a driveway. The vehicle came to a stop in a ditch off the south side of the road. 

North was transported to Fisher-Titus Medical Center with unknown injuries that were believed to be minor, troopers said.

The accident closed the northbound and southbound lanes of U.S. 250 until about 3 p.m.

Drugs and alcohol are not suspected to be crash factors, troopers said.
