In a devastating incident that unfolded on Tuesday evening, a fatal car crash occurred when a vehicle careened into a hospital in Fostoria, Ohio. The Ohio State Highway Patrol reported that one person lost their life as a result of the collision.

The unfortunate accident took place at around 6:40 pm on Van Buren Street in Fostoria. According to the preliminary investigation conducted by the Highway Patrol, Howard Stevenson, a 58-year-old resident of Bloomdale, was operating a Ford pickup truck, heading southwest on Van Buren Street. Tragically, Stevenson failed to navigate a curve, causing the vehicle to lose control. Subsequently, the pickup truck veered off the right side of the roadway, colliding with a sidewalk, before careening off the left side of the road.

Shockingly, the wayward vehicle continued its destructive path, tearing through the parking lot of ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital, ultimately crashing into the building itself. Both the driver and the passenger were promptly transported inside the hospital for immediate medical attention.

Regrettably, the driver sustained severe injuries and had to be urgently airlifted to ProMedica of Toledo Hospital. Meanwhile, the passenger, identified as Penny S. Stevenson, a 55-year-old resident of Bloomdale, could not survive the fatal injuries sustained during the devastating crash and tragically succumbed to her wounds at ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital.

Investigations into the incident are currently underway, with authorities seeking to determine the exact cause of the crash. It has been revealed that neither occupant of the vehicle was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, highlighting the importance of adhering to safety measures while operating a motor vehicle.

In response to the distressing incident, the Ohio State Highway Patrol received assistance from multiple local agencies, including Fostoria PD, Fostoria Fire Department, and Franks Towing. These collaborative efforts aim to shed light on the circumstances surrounding the crash and provide answers to the grieving family and community.

As the investigation unfolds, the community of Fostoria mourns the loss of Penny S. Stevenson and hopes for the speedy recovery of Howard Stevenson. This unfortunate incident serves as a somber reminder of the importance of attentiveness, caution, and adherence to safety precautions while on the road.
