JACKSON TOWNSHIP, Mahoning County, Ohio -

One driver is still in critical condition following Tuesday's car accident in Jackson Township.

Authorities responded to a head-on accident on State Route 45 north of Blott Road just after 2 p.m.

State troopers say that 30-year-old Adam Zia, of Jacksonville, Arkansas, was driving a Dodge pick-up truck that went left of center and crashed into a vehicle in the oncoming lane.

Both drivers were taken to Saint Elizabeth Hospital.

The other driver, 59-year-old David Miller of Minerva, Ohio, was placed in critical care, and continues to receive treatment.

Investigators say there are several reports earlier in the day about a vehicle fitting the description of the pickup truck driving erratically.

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.
