The time period from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend is referred to as the 100 Deadliest Days of Summer, says the State Highway Patrol.  

During this period last year, more than 67,000 crashes occurred on Ohio’s roadways, a 3 percent drop from 2022. 

Of those, 371 were fatal crashes that killed 397 people, which was five less than the year prior. 

Even though the 100 deadliest days only represent 27 percent of the calendar year, in the last five years, they account for more than one-third of all fatal traffic crashes.

The State Highway Patrol is reminding motorists to buckle up, drive focused and sober.

Two people face multiple charges after leading authorities on a search throughout eastern Erie County last week. 

According to the Sandusky Register, 32-year-old Richard Garvey of Wakeman was charged with driving under suspension, obstructing official business and various weapons charges.  

28-year-old Jamie Gabel of Vermilion has been charged with obstructing official business and complicity to having weapons while under disability.

Garvey and Gabel reportedly tried to evade police when Garvey saw an officer, with them parking and abandoning their vehicle and escaping on foot. 

Garvey was found hiding behind a tree at the intersection of Hickory and Sassafras Drive near Vermilion. 

Gabel remains at large as of Sunday. 

Lorain County Community College has announced that they’ve received a five million dollar gift to the Lorain County Community College Foundation.  

It will be used to create the college’s STEM Discovery Institute. 

In recognition of the gift, the college will name the institute the “Eric & Jane Nord College Center”.  

The college says that as the institute develops, programming will include opportunities to engage high school students in STEM education through College Credit Plus and other opportunities.

Here’s a reminder about a continued road closure in Sandusky this week. 

West Perkins Avenue will be closed from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm today and Tuesday for the production of a feature film.

The city says that the official detour will take traffic down to Strub Road, but locals are asked to use familiar side streets.

Pedestrians are also asked to stay clear of West Perkins Avenue during the closure, due to safety reasons.

Final preparations are coming together for the 4th annual Fishing Derby at Willard Reservoir. 

It’s this Saturday from 8 am to noon, with the first 50 kids to register receiving a free fishing pole. 

It’s also a part of Ohio Fish Free Weekend, so no need for a fishing license.
