According to the Mercer County Sheriff's Office, A motorcycle driven by 27 year old Jacob Smith of Celina was northbound on State Route 29 near State Route 703 at 3:30 pm, when a gust of wind pushed him into the left side of the road, causing Smith to go into the median. Smith lost control, rolled multiple times and came to rest in the median. The report states Smith was taken to Joint Township District Memorial Hospital in St Marys with non-incapacitating injuries. Approximately 2 hours later, 57 year old Timothy Voress of Lima was westbound on State Route 29 near Riley Road when his vehicle left the roadway, went up an embankment, struck a fence and went into a field.
