Three teens receive minor injuries 9.06

Written by David Green.

Three Morenci teens escaped with minor injuries from a roll-over accident Friday afternoon.

Logan Clark, 16, of E. Coomer Street was driving a 1999 Ford Mustang convertible north on State Route 108 in Fulton County when he lost control of the vehicle and it went off the road on the west side. The car rolled over into a soybean field and struck a utility pole.

The accident was reported at 5:23 p.m. and occurred south of Fulton County Road M, according to the Toledo post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Clark was transported from the scene by a medical helicopter. His passengers, Clayton Wolf and Wyatt Yenor, were taken by ambulance to the Fulton County Health Center and later transferred to Toledo hospitals.

Wolf was ejected from the vehicle, but he was released from the hospital later that night. Yenor was released the next day and Clark returned home Monday.

The accident report indicates the vehicle is registered to Stacey Westbrook of Maybee, Mich. Although Westbrook stated that the car was lawfully at the Wes Clark residence in Morenci, she filed a stolen car report which is being investigated by the Morenci Police Department.

Clark faces charges of driving without a license and failure to control a vehicle, but other charges are pending, according to State Patrol trooper Andrew Edinger.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
