Distracted driving and icy roads blamed for Youngstown crash

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Police say distracted driving played a part in a traffic accident that sent a woman and two children to the hospital.

It happened around 10 a.m. Tuesday along the Madison Avenue Expressway.

Police say the driver of a Mercury Sable swerved to avoid an SUV, but the Sable slid on an icy patch and flipped over onto its roof.

Two young children along with the female driver of the Sable were taken by ambulance to the hospital.

Police do not believe the injuries threaten the lives of the victims.

Authorities are still investigating.
