MOUNT VERNON - A two-car accident at the intersection of Wooster and Fairgrounds roads on Tuesday evening sent a truck and trailer into the front yard of a nearby home.
Details of the accident are not currently available from the Ohio State Highway Patrol but it appeared no one was injured in the accident. Traffic on Wooster Road was routed through the parking lot of the Adventist Book Center so there was no travel interruption.
