      A Payne woman was cited for failure to control after her car crashed into First Financial Bank in downtown Paulding last week. No one was seriously injured.


    Progress Editor   PAULDING – A car crashed through the front window of a downtown Pauld- ing bank just before noon on Friday. No serious injuries were reported, although several people were in the bank lobby at the time for the bank’s Customer Ap-  preciation Day.   Lorraine M. Papp, age 91, of Payne, was attempting to back her 1999 Chevy

    Lumina into a parking space on Main

    Street at about 11:32 a.m. Oct. 30. Po- lice said that Papp accidentally hit the accelerator and ran over the curb, across the sidewalk and backed through sever- al windows at First Financial Bank at the corner of Main and Jackson streets.   Papp was not injured in the mis- hap, nor was her passenger, Lucille H. Schmidt, 82, of Payne.   Two persons inside the bank sus-

    tained minor injuries, reportedly from

    ying glass. One was the bank manag- er, Steven Myers.   Paulding EMS transported one of the individuals to Paulding County Hospi- tal, while the second person drove to the Emergency Room.   On Monday, First Financial Bank’s regional manager Andrew Kiess, said

    PAULDING – A Toledo man was seriously injured in a crash involving two semi-trucks on U.S. 24 last Wednesday afternoon.   The Ohio State Highway Pa- trol’s Van Wert Post said the inci- dent occurred at 3:29 p.m. Oct. 28 on U.S. 24, one-half mile west of Road 115 in Emerald Township.   The crash immediately closed  both lanes of westbound U.S. 24.   A 2015 Volvo semi-truck, driv- en by Daniel W. Guy Jr., age 42,

    of Toledo, was westbound on US 24. Guy came upon a slower mov- ing semi-truck driven by Maurice W. Waller Jr., age 26, of Philadel-  phia, driving a 2016 International semi-truck pulling a loaded at-  bed trailer.   Troopers said Guy did not slow or change lanes to account for the slower semi-truck and struck the atbed trailer. Guy’s truck cab  became separated from the frame, trapping him in the driver’s seat.   Paulding Fire Department and EMS responded to the crash scene, and with the help of Gideon’s Towing and Recovery, Guy was extricated from the wreckage. He was transported by air ambulance

    to a Fort Wayne hospital, where he is being treated for critical injuries.   As of late Monday, Guy’s con- dition had been upgraded from “serious” to “fair” condition at Parkview Regional Medical Cen- ter in Fort Wayne.   Waller was not injured in the

    Escaped inmate caught in Michigan From Staff Reports

      PAULDING – A Paulding County jail inmate who escaped from custody Friday evening was apprehended early Tuesday in

    Michigan.   Sheriff Jason Landers an- nounced J. Tucker Harman, age 26, was taken into custody in Cheboygan County, Mich., on a Paulding County Common Pleas

    Warrant for escape, a third-degree felony.   At approximately 6:30 p.m. Fri- day, Oct. 30, the sheriff’s ofce learned that Harman walked away

    from 333 E. Hamilton St., Bryan, while on a medical furlough.   According to authorities in Che-  boygan County, Harman and Mari- ah Beedle, age 23, were located at a residence just a few miles south of

    the Mackinac Bridge. Harman and Beedle were in possession of an al- leged stolen vehicle out of Indiana. The vehicle the duo was operating  broke down on I-75, which lead to

    law enforcement being contacted.   Harman and Beedle, both of Paulding, had been indicted in October, Harman on one count of having weapons while under dis- ability, a third-degree felony, and

    Beedle for one count of identity fraud, a fth-degree felony. Beedle had been released from custody on  bond.

    “The report I obtained early this

    morning from Cheboygan County authorities indicates Harman and Beedle initially provided false names to law enforcement,” said
