LIMA — A two-vehicle crash north of Lima sent two to the hospital Thursday afternoon.

A power pole appeared to have sustained an impact and was broken. The second vehicle, a black Chevrolet S-10 truck, had sustained significant front-end damage on the passenger side with the rear window shattered.

First responders from American Township Fire Department were forced to cut open the top of the Mariner to extract both occupants of the vehicle. The passenger, a white male, was taken out by emergency medical personnel on a stretcher, while the driver, a white female, was able to move on her own, able to sit on a stretcher before laying down to be transported to hospital. Both occupants were transported to St. Rita’s Medical Center, according to the American Township Fire Department. Their conditions have not yet been released.
