Safety crews called to Newton, Bristol vehicle accidents

NEWTON — Safety crews were called out around the same time Saturday evening to a two-car crash in Newton Township and a car-motorcycle crash in Bristol Township both with reported injuries.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol responded after 6:30 p.m. to a two-car crash in the 2600 block of Newton Tomlinson Road SW which sent two people to the hospital with injuries.

A 911 report indicates one driver was trapped inside the car and officials had to use the Jaws of Life to remove the person who was then airlifted to St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital. The conditions of the drivers are unknown, and the crash is still being investigated.

Troopers say the road was shut down for a period of time between Miller Graber Road and Selkirk Bush Road.

In Bristol, crews were called out at 6:45 p.m. to a motorcycle-car crash on State Route 88 NW between Oakfield North Road NW and Thompson Clark Road NW. A 911 report indicates a female on motorcycle was badly injured and taken to the hospital. Her name and condition were not available.
