Two people are taken to Grant Medical Center in Columbus after an accident along State Route 13 in Newark.

It happened just after 10 a.m., north of Chestnut Hills Road.

The Granville Post of the State Highway Patrol says Jim Everheart was driving south on State Route 13 with passenger Crystal Loman when the vehicle went left of center and struck Deborah Paxton, who was traveling north. Dispatchers say Everheart’s car did flip.

Medflight was dispatched to the scene. Everheart and Loman were taken to the hospital. A hospital spokesperson says the conditions of the patients aren’t being released at this time, but dispatchers could tell us that Everheart was undergoing surgery.
