Christopher Page, 25, 727 Marilyn Drive, was operating a truck towing a 2014 trailer southbound on Wapakoneta Avenue approaching Hoewisher Road when Petty, who traveling westbound on Hoewisher Road, pulled into Page’s path and struck his trailer in the intersection.

• Helen E. Fogt, 92, 874 Country Side Lane, was cited with starting and backing after a non-injury crash involving a pedestrian pushing a baby stroller on Wednesday at 2:27 p.m.

Fogt was backing out of a parking space in the CVS parking lot on Fourth Avenue when her vehicle struck the hand of pedestrian Jessica Blount, 214 Grove St., and baby stroller that she was pushing eastbound through the parking lot. The stroller contained two children. The collision did not cause the stroller to tip over, nor caused any injuries.

Blount told police the collision scared her and that she was “shook up about it,” but denied medics to come to the scene as she and the children were not hurt. Blount told the responding officer that she wanted to press charges.

Fogt told police she didn’t see anyone when backing up, but Blount had informed her she and her stroller were struck by Fogt’s vehicle.

According to the police report, after conferring with Sidney Prosecutor Jeff Amick, the responding officer was advised a citation for starting and backing would be approved for the crash.
