The jaws of life were needed to cut two people out of their van after a two car accident Friday afternoon.

The accident happened around 1:45 pm on Frazeysburg Road. Troopers say Currillies Trimble from Cambridge, was making a left hand turn from a private drive when he failed to yield to Marie Allwood of Nashport driving north on Frazeysburg Road. Troopers says her Acura hit the side of the van doing 40 miles per hour.

Trimble and his wife, Corrie, and Allwood were taken by Community Ambulance to Good Samaritan Hospital. All three were treated and released.

Frazeysburg Road was shut down for about 45 minutes while the accident was being cleared. Troopers say Trimble will be cited for failure to yield.

Falls Township Fire Department, Community Ambulance and the Ohio State Highway Patrol responded to the accident.
