According to the the Ohio State Highway Patrol, a white Buick minivan was driving westbound US 22 when the driver drove into the other lane and struck a gray Lincoln car.

"Looking at the crash scene, it’s obvious the Buick was way left of center, the Buick even tagged the southern guard rail, he was that far left of center."

There were five passengers in the Lincoln car, a man and woman and three minors. There was one person in the Buick minivan. All of them were taken to the hospital and one person was Medflighted.

"The ones that were taken by ambulance were taken to Genesis Good Sam, and I’m not sure where the helicopter went."

Trooper Duerson says the cause of the crash is most likely because the Buick was driving in the wrong lane and says citations will be filed when he talks to the drivers.
