Two people died Sunday afternoon in a fatal crash on U.S. Route 22 in Fairfield County.
Troopers from the Ohio State Highway Patrol responded to a two-vehicle head-on crash on U.S. 22 east of state Route 159 just outside Lancaster at about 2:40 p.m. Sunday.
According to officers, a man, identified as Robert Kaelbli, 77, was driving a silver Toyota Camry, westbound on U.S. 22, crossed the center line and collided with a black Honda Civic with two female occupants that was headed eastbound.
Multiple firefighters are hospitalized after they are involved in a crash while responding to an emergency run.
According to the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to the area of Coonpath Road and Old Millersport Road, on the report of a crash involving a fire vehicle at about 8:33 a.m. Saturday.
Deputies say a fire truck responded to a crash, lost control, rolled over and struck a utility pole.
Three firefighters have been transported to an area hospital with, what deputies said, appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.
