“I heard this loud crash,” said Theresa Bond who lives off of Harshman Road. “I was wondering if someone threw something through my bedroom window, and I was thinking someone is trying to break in.”

The sound was actually 20-year-old Marissa Bill crashing head-on into another car, according to the crash report.

Bill was traveling left of the turning lane at the time of the collision that left her trapped in her car until emergency crews arrived on scene to rescue her.

“It scared the heck out of me,” Bond said.

Bill and the driver of the second car were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

They were both wearing seatbelts.

Bill was issued a citation for driving left of center.

The crash and investigation shut down the stretch of Harshman Road near the Korean Dayton Grace Church until about 6 a.m. before police reopened it.
