Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIANA COUNTY, Ohio  -  A trust fund has now been set up for the children of two Calcutta firefighters who were killed in a head-on crash on Sunday.

Thirty-nine-year-old James Nign, his wife, 27-year-old Meghann Nign, and 11-year-old passenger and family friend Addisyn Benzel of Minerva, all died when the Chevrolet Equinox they were riding in was hit head-on by a Jeep Cherokee.

The Equinox driven by James Nign was carrying 9 people, including 6 children.

The Jeep Cherokee driven by Rachel Lindesmith, and carrying her 9-month-old son, traveled left-of-center on State Route 518, near Mile Post 4 in Wayne Township, causing the collision according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.  Lindesmith and her son survived.

Six children in the Nign's vehicle were taken to area hospitals, but survived.

A fund has now been set up at Chase Bank for the couple's children, and family.  If you would like to make a donation you can go to any Chase Bank and donate to:  "The Ludwig / Nign Benefit Fund."
