RICHMOND TWP. — The Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Norwalk Post is investigating a one-vehicle injury crash Monday morning on U.S. 224 at the Huron-Seneca county line in Richmond Township.

Michala D. Williams, 21, of Willard, sustained incapacitating injuries and was transported to Mercy Willard Hospital by the Willard Fire Department. Ms. Williams was wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash and her 2009 Kia Rio was towed from the scene. She had two passengers in the car, Stanley Williams, 4, and Kyler Williams, 10 months.

Stanley was the right rear seat passenger, in a booster seat without the seat belt fastened and was ejected from the car. He was transported by Life Flight to Mercy Health — St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo with incapacitating injuries. Kyler was the left rear passenger in a car seat and sustained non-incapacitating injuries. He was transported to Mercy Willard Hospital by the Willard Fire Department.

The car was eastbound on U.S. 224 when Williams lost control and drove off the right side of the roadway. The car hit a sign and a ditch. After hitting the ditch, the car overturned and came back out onto the roadway on its top and came to rest in the westbound lanes of U.S. 224. Assisting on scene was the Willard Fire Department, AVR Fire Department, Huron County Sherriff’s Office, Life Flight, and Clark Brothers.

Williams was cited for failure to control and failure to secure her child in a booster seat.
