Head-on collision sends multiple people to the hospital


A head on collision sent multiple people to the hospital Saturday night in Belmont County.

The accident happened on US Route 250 near Colerain. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol two vehicles collided head-on.

Three people were taken to the hospital and traffic was backed up along Route 250 while the crash was cleaned up.

"Two vehicles were traveling in different directions on US 250. One vehicle went left of center and struck the other one head-on and forced it into the guardrail," Sgt. Todd McDonald.

"These roads are windy you need to slow down and maintain your speed. Good thing that they were wearing their seat belts, it probably limited the injuries. We just ask people to wear their seat belts and drive cautiously," Sgt. McDonald added.

The road reopened soon after.
