Both drivers were injured in an accident between two semis at the intersection of U.S. 23 and U.S. 224 on Monday at 10:30 a.m. According to Sgt. Matt Davis at the Fremont post of the State Highway Patrol, Jeffrey McIntosh, 63, of Toledo, was traveling westward on U.S. 224 when he failed to stop at a red light and collided with Sean Coleman, 39, of Westerville, who was traveling northbound on U.S. 23. After impact, Coleman’s 2014 Volvo VNM jackknifed and went off the left side of the road while McIntosh’s 2015 Freightliner Cascadia hit a traffic sign and then an electric pole before overturning on its side, said Davis. The two drivers were trapped in their cabs after the collision. Though McIntosh was able to be helped out of his overturned vehicle, Coleman had to be freed by mechanical extraction. McIntosh was taken by Bascom EMS to Fostoria Community Hospital. Life Flight transported Coleman to the hospital where he is reportedly in stable condition, according to Davis. Davis said both drivers were wearing their seat belts.
