Two people were taken to Grant Medical Center in Columbus by helicopter Monday afternoon following an accident in Licking County.

According to the Granville Post of the State Highway Patrol, the accident happened around 3 p.m. on State Route 79 over Interstate 70 in Union Township.

Troopers say a Ford pick-up heading north on State Route 79 struck a John Deere tractor that was also heading northbound.

The truck then overturned. The drivers of both vehicles were ejected and transported to the hospital with critical injuries. The crash remains under investigation.
