What the heck is going on?

I've gotten a pair of phone calls that seem too weird to be unrelated when they're so close together but I can't make head or tails about what it could mean.

Yesterday evening when I was coming home from work I got a collect call from the Seneca County Jail (Ohio). Unfortunately our dog Fishstick was barking so much and so loudly that I couldn't hear who it was from or any of the menu options. I tried hitting a button but apparently it was the deny button and that was it. At the time I assumed it was just a wrong number as I don't know anyone in Seneca county, at least no one who would think to call me in an emergency.
This afternoon I received a call from the Cleveland police asking for someone named Sara. Apparently there was an accident and one of the people involved gave my cell phone number out as their contact number. They didn't ask anything about me once they confirmed the number they called was the one given to them and it wasn't who they were looking for nor did I know the person.
Cleveland isn't in Seneca County but it is within a day's driving distance. I live in Toledo which is about as close.
Is this just a really bizarre set of coincidences or should I begin worrying about my identity being stolen or something like that?
