MANSFIELD, OH - A multi-vehicle accident sent at least two people to the hospital with serious injuries saturday afternoon.
Around 12:48 p.m., a 1997 Peterbilt Semi Tractor towing a Flat Bed Trailer loaded with steel beams failed to stop after exiting I-71 North to US 30.
A 2008 Ford Expedition SUV was traveling eastbound on US 30, towing a utility trailer, when it struck the side of the Semi. The impact forced the Expedition underneath the Semi Trailer. Both occupants of the Expedition became trapped and had to be forcefully extracted by Mifflin Fire and EMS.
The driver of the SUV, 28-year-old Bradley Abell, and his 24-year-old passenger Jessica Connell from Stevensville, Maryland, were both transported to Ohio Health Mansfield for serious injuries.
The driver of the Semi was 40-year-old Kenneth Sexton of Mansfield; he was not injured in the crash. The incident remains under investigation.
Both lanes of US 30 East were shut down for a length of time as crews worked to clear the scene.
