DARKE COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – One person was taken to the hospital by CareFlight after a crash in Darke County Wednesday.

Darke County dispatchers told 2 NEWS police were called to the scene of the serious crash on State Route 49 near Pitsburg.

The initial investigation found that a Ford Edge traveled over the centerline while driving south on SR-49. This caused a Buick Rendezvous to swerve over the right side of the road to avoid hitting the Ford, but was still sideswiped by it.

A Chevy Equinox driving northwest on SR-49 swerved to avoid the collision and hit a trashcan.

The driver of the Ford continued in the wrong lane after sideswiping the Buick and hit a semi head-on.

A woman in the Ford was taken to the hospital by CareFlight. The man in the semi was treated on scene and refused to go to the hospital.

The extent of the injuries of the female taken to the hospital is not known at this time.
