Two men were critically hurt in a head-on collision on US 30 East near Convoy, Ohio early Monday morning.
Ohio State Police said they received a call shortly after midnight saying someone was driving the wrong way on US 30.
A few minutes later, emergency dispatchers got another call reporting there had been a crash in the eastbound lanes.
Emergency personnel responded to the crash on US 30 between Colwell and Convoy roads.
When they arrived, they found a pickup truck and a car, both with heavy front-end damage.
Firefighters had to cut the driver of the car out of the vehicle.
Both drivers were transported to a Fort Wayne hospital via ambulance. Troopers at the scene said they requested helicopters for both drivers, but weather in the area restricted them from responding.
Police said the drivers were the only people in the vehicles. As of Monday morning, both men were listed in critical condition at the hospital.
After interviewing witnesses and conducting an investigation, police determined the driver of the pickup truck was driving the wrong way in the eastbound lanes when he crashed head-on with the car.
It’s not clear why the driver of the truck was going the wrong way, or what other factors might have contributed to the crash.
The eastbound lanes of US 30 were shut down for more than two hours while crews investigated and cleaned up the crash scene.
