Four adults and two juveniles were involved in a two-car crash last weekend, with the juveniles flown to Miami Valley Hospital.
According to a report received Wednesday from Branden Jackman, public information officer with the Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District, first responders from Paint Creek’s Hillsboro station were alerted to the possibility of a serious injury motor vehicle accident on May 7 at approximately 2 p.m. on SR 247 in the area of Patton Road.
Units arriving on scene found two cars with heavy damage off the roadway. The driver of a purple Scion had been attempting to turn onto Patton Road, entering the path of a full sized Ford truck, Jackman said.
Six people were involved in the accident, with two being juveniles. The juveniles were trapped in the vehicle and it took fire personnel approximately 15 minutes to free them from the vehicle, said Jackman.
The fouradults from the crash were transported to Highland District Hospital with the help of mutual aid units from personnel from the Lynchburg Area Joint Fire & Ambulance District and Highland North Joint Fire & EMS (Leesburg).
The two juveniles were transported from the scene via Care Flight helicopter out of Miami Valley Hospital due to the extent of their injuries. There was no update available on their condition.
Personnel from Paint Creek remained on scene for approximately one and a half hours to facilitate care of the injured and assist law enforcement with traffic control.
