The Wyandot County Sheriff’s Office reported two vehicles were involved in accidents Thursday due to high winds.
The first accident Thursday occurred around 6:27 p.m. on U.S. 30 east of CH 81 in Richland Township. According to a report from the WCSO, Anthony T. Lowe, Osage City, Kan., was traveling eastbound on U.S. 30 when high winds from the north overturned the 2010 Freightliner Cascadia he was driving. The semi-trailer came to a rest on its right side covering three-quarters of the roadway. The driver was uninjured, according to the report, and the vehicle sustained disabling damage and was towed.
At about 8:04 p.m. Thursday, Brett D. Smalley, Forest, was traveling eastbound on CH 53 east of CH 81 in Jackson Township when strong winds from the north broke a large tree branch along CH 53. The branch fell onto the 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix that Smalley was driving. It sustained functional damage and was towed.
No one was injured in the accident, the report said.
