According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, a Ford Escape being driven by 56-year-old Minda Shun of Western Ohio was traveling east on South Denmark Road when she failed to yield to a Ford F-150 at the State Route 193 intersection. The truck, headed northbound on that road, slammed into the car around 5:34 p.m.
