A Sunday crash on Ohio 203 resulted in the death of two young men.
The Ohio Highway Patrol has stated in a news release that a CRV driven by Eric Richie, 26, was southbound on Ohio 203 when a Pontiac Grand Am driven by Robert Persinger, 31, struck the Honda CRV after failing to stop at a stop sign. The Grand Am struck the right passenger side of Richie’s car. Both vehicles went off the side of the intersection and into a field after the collision.
Richie had two passengers in his CRV, Jarred Bullion and Quinton Owens. After the accident, Persinger, Bullion and Owens were all taken to Grant Medical Center by medical helicopters. Bullion died on the way to the hospital and Richie was pronounced dead at the scene.
Persinger and Owens suffered incapacitating injuries but were responsive at the scene of the crash.
According to a police report completed by Lt. Lance Shearer, alcohol is suspected to have been a cause of the crash. There was no excessive speed reported.
Our thoughts go out to the Bullion and Richie families. We also wish a speedy recovery to the others injured in this accident.
