Medical Helicopter Responds To Arlington Crash

A medical helicopter landed at the scene of a crash in Arlington on Sunday night.

The crash happened at North Main Street and Vail Street, near the entrance to the Dollar General, at around 5:45 p.m.

It appeared that a car involved in the crash had struck the bridge.

Firefighters had to extricate people from the wreckage.

Two of the injured, the 16-year-old driver, from Pickerington, and a 10-year-old passenger, from Rockwood, were taken to the hospital by ambulance, and another 16-year-old, from Pickerington, was life-flighted from the scene by a helicopter that landed beside the Dollar General.

The sheriff’s office said the driver was going north when he attempted to pass several vehicles and sideswiped a vehicle and then crashed into the corner of the bridge.

ODOT was called to the scene to inspect the bridge.
