CareFlight was dispatched Monday afternoon to a head-on collision on Mowrystown-Sardinia Road that sent one to UC Health in unstable condition, and another to Highland District Hospital with injuries.

An Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper on scene told The Times-Gazette a silver BMW headed north took a curve too fast and drove into the oncoming lane, striking a silver GMC Acadia head-on and trapping the driver of the BMW in the vehicle. Emergency personell used the Jaws of Life to extract the driver.

The trooper said the driver of the BMW was unresponsive, except to say, “Pain all over my body.” The driver was immediately transported to UC Health by CareFlight.

According to the trooper, the driver of the Acadia had several abrasions to the shins, as well as other scratches, and was transported to Highland District Hospital.

At press time, the OSHP had no identification for either party, and charges had not been filed, although the trooper said the BMW would be at fault.
