JACKSON TWP, Ohio (WYTV) – Five people went to the hospital Wednesday morning after a crash in Jackson Township.
It happened around 11:30 a.m. near the intersection of Mahoning Avenue and S. Lipkey Road.
Police say the driver of a sedan pulled into the path of an SUV carrying a woman and her three grandchildren. The impact sent the sedan down an embankment and through a fence line of the Meander Reservoir preserve.
The chief said he has been trying to get a traffic light installed at the intersection for years.
“We’ve been fortunate enough to get a grand last year, just to try to monitor some of these additional traffic hazards, and the grant was awarded to us because of the number of fatalities we’ve had in the township,” said Chief Greg Taillon.
The chief said township officials will appeal to the state to install a signal there.
Fortunately, no one in the crash was badly hurt.
