LIGONIER - The dense fog apparently was a factor in a three vehicle crash near Ligonier early this morning that sent three people to the hospital.
The Noble County Sheriff’s Department says it happened at 3:34 a-m on State Road 5 and 900 North.
An SUV driven by Stephanie Lehman of Rome City disregarded a stop sign at the intersection and struck a northbound car driven by Alberto Segovia of Ligonier. A van driven by Ralph Covey Jr. of Topeka then struck Segovia’s car.
Segovia and a passenger – Felipe Aranda of Ligonier – were transported to Parkview Regional Medical Center.
Covey was transported to Parkview Noble Hospital.
Ligonier Police and Firefighters assisted deputies at the scene.
