One driver sent to HDH after crash


The driver of a southbound Dodge Avenger was transported to Highland District Hospital Wednesday afternoon following a rear-end collision caused by another southbound vehicle that police said was following too closely. The crash occurred shortly before 2 p.m. on North High Street in Hillsboro in front of Frisch’s restaurant. Traffic was maintained by patrol officers from the Hillsboro Police Department while emergency personnel from the Paint Creek Joint/EMS Fire District responded to the crash scene.
