Erratic driving may have factored into head-on Jackson Township crash

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON TOWNSHIP, Mahoning County, Ohio -

Two people were rushed to the hospital following a two vehicle crash in Jackson Township on Tuesday afternoon.

First responders were called out just after 2:00 p.m. to the head-on accident on State Route 45 north of Blott Road.

State troopers tell 21 News that a Dodge pick-up truck went left of center and crashed into a vehicle in the oncoming lane.

Both drivers were taken to Saint Elizabeth Hospital. At least one of the victims is suffering from traumatic injuries. Names of those involved have not been released.

Jackson Township police say that they are aware of four reports submitted about a truck fitting the description of  the one involved in the crash.

The Mahoning County Sheriff received a call on Monday that a silver colored pickup truck was driving erratically in Ellsworth Township.

Earlier Tuesday, Jackson Township police were told of a similar truck driving erratically on Lipkey Road and again on Mahoning Avenue.  A truck fitting the same description was also reported in a road rage incident on State Route 45.

Circumstances surrounding the crash are still being investigated by the Ohio Highway Patrol. They say that have not ruled out  alcohol or drugs as a factor in the accident.
