CAIRO — Two people were injured in a two-vehicle crash on Lincoln Highway at Stewart Road on Monday night.
A 2016 Freightliner box truck, driven by 45-year-old Steven L. Love, of Indianapolis, travelled north on Stewart Road and failed to stop at a stop sign. Love’s truck struck a westbound 2000 GMC Yukon, driven by Richard L. Hager, 41, of Cairo, at 4:56 p.m. Monday, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Lima post.
Hager was mechanically removed from his vehicle and transported to St. Rita’s Medical Center, where he is listed in critical condition.
Love was treated and released from St. Rita’s. A passenger in his truck, Chengjun Yuan, 50, of Fishers, Indiana, was unijured.
Seat belts were used, and alcohol is not believed to be a factor. The crash remains under investigation.
