Unbelted motorist injured in crash

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        GREEN TOWNSHIP — Three weeks after a statewide crackdown on unbelted drivers began, an 81-year-old Westwood man who was not wearing his seat belt was ejected from his vehicle in a crash Saturday.

        Henry Willner was treated at University Hospital Saturday night.

        According to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, Mr. Willner left a restaurant parking lot in the 6400 block of Glenway Avenue at 5:20 p.m. in his 1989 Eagle Premier and was struck by a 1990 Ford truck driven by William Dennler, 46, of Cleves. Mr. Dennler was wearing his seat belt and didn't require treatment.

        Officers cited Mr. Willner for a seat-belt violation and failure to yield. The State Highway Patrol earlier this month began a crackdown on motorists who don't buckle up, making tickets — rather than just warnings — mandatory.
