Several people were injured in a car accident Monday afternoon in Whitehouse, Ohio.

The accident happened at the intersection of Eber Road and Weckerly Road just north of Anthony Wayne High School and Junior High, just after 2:30 p.m.

The Ohio State Highway patrol says Robert Kerr, 51, of Whitehouse, was traveling westbound on Weckerly Road in a Chevrolet Aveo. Haylee Leedy, 20, of Toledo, was traveling eastbound on Weckerly Road in a Ford Taurus.

Both vehicles traveled off the north side of the roadway. Kerr's vehicle struck a mailbox, Leedy's struck a boulder.

Passengers in Leedy's car were Alexander Cole, 20, of Toledo, in the front passenger seat, Ella Cole, age 2, in a car seat in the second row, middle seat, and Ayva and Gavin Cole, 11 weeks, both in car seats in the second row, right and left seat.
