2 deaths reported in northwest Ohio crash

DEFIANCE, Ohio (AP) — The state Highway Patrol reports two people have been killed in a two-vehicle crash in northwest Ohio.

Authorities at the Patrol's Defiance post say a third person was transported to a hospital after the crash just before noon Sunday. No other details were released pending investigation and contacting the family of those who were killed.

It wasn't known immediately whether the area's harsh winter weather contributed to the crash on State Route 66. Highway lanes were closed as troopers investigated.
