Motorist Airlifted from Scene of Plymouth Crash


A motorist sheriff’s deputies say pulled across U.S. 30 from Beech Road into the path of an oncoming semi truck Tuesday afternoon was airlifted from the scene of the ensuing three-vehicle crash. The eastbound semi, driven by Doren L. Smith, 59, of Arlington, Ohio, struck the minivan driven by Nazario Oviedo Jr., 42, of Bourbon. Oviedo’s car rolled over in the median, and he was thrown from the vehicle. The semi also went into the median and overturned, losing the contents of its trailer all over the roadway. The rig continued to slide north across the westbound lanes of 30 and struck a westbound car driven by Mindy K. Thompson, 44, of Bremen. Oviedo was arlifted to South Bend Memorial Hospital. Smith and Thompson were both treated at the scene.
