The City of Swanton – The Toledo Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal motor vehicle crash which occurred on North Main Street southeast of Fulton Street in the City of Swanton, Fulton County on March 10th at approximately 1:21 P.M.
A 1996 Ford Econoline driven by 60-year-old Peter Nagan of Swanton, Ohio was traveling northwest on North Main Street when traveled left of center and struck head-on, a 2012 Ford Fusion driven by Elizabeth Hauenstein of Toledo, Ohio. Both vehicles were forced off of the roadway and into a yard.
Mr. Nagan was transported to St. Luke’s Hospital via ground ambulance where he was pronounced deceased at 2:19 P.M. Mrs. Hauenstein was transported to the University of Toledo Medical Center with minor injuries. A passenger in the vehicle of Mrs. Hauenstein, Richard Hauenstein was transported to the University of Toledo Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
The crash is still under investigation, and a possible medical condition for Mr. Nagan appears to be a contributing factor in the crash. Safety belts were used by both drivers, but not the passenger, Mr. Hauenstein.
