Eaton Township – State Troopers say that a teen driving with a temporary permit turned into the path of a Ford Ranger Saturday night in Eaton Township.

The Windstar van was traveling east on Route 82 in Eaton when the teen, with the family in the van with him, attempted to make a left turn onto Hawke Road – causing a collision with the Ranger that was traveling west on 82.

The collision sent the Ranger off the road and rolling it onto its top. The van spun around and came to rest on Hawke Road.

Chief Phil Slack of the Eaton Township Fire Department said that although there was some minor scrapes none of the 6 people involved wanted to be transported to the hospital.

Trooper Lance Deshuk of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said that the young driver, who had his father in the passenger seat, was cited for Failure to Yield a Left Turn.

I hope everyone is ok. I also hope this young driver isnt traumatized for life. It happens even to the best drivers. Now here is my question I was in a similar accident only I was the one seriously injured and was cited for Right of Way. Is that the same as failure to yield? I too was making a left turn.
