RACINE —An unidentified woman was airlifted to a hospital following a crash Friday afternoon on U.S. 33.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol, Racine Fire Department, Meigs EMS and Meigs County Sheriff’s Office responded to the crash at approximately 6 p.m. Friday. OSHP is responsible for the investigation and released limited information at press time.

A female in a red Toyata Prius reportedly crossed U.S. 33 from Morning Star Road (County Road 30) and collided with a Brown GMC Sonoma driven by an unidentified male. The Prius spun and came to rest in the middle of U.S. 33 among a large amount of debris. The Sonoma careened off the road and landed on its side.

The severity of the crash, troopers said, made it difficult to determine the direction of travel.

Bystanders gathered at the scene indicated the sedan had pulled in front of the oncoming pickup and stated there were witnesses to the crash.

Officers present declined to comment while the incident remains under investigation.

According to EMS on the scene, they delivered the injured female to Meigs Emergency Room prior to airlifting her to an area hospital.

The male was treated at the accident site.

The accident is still under investigation and no further information on the condition of the woman is available.
