HANCOCK COUNTY, OH (WTOL) - Police are investigating a wrong-way crash that left two people injured in Hancock County on Thursday.

The crash occurred on northbound I-75 just south of State Route 18 in Allen Township around 6:30 p.m.

Police say 80-year-old Marie Woodruff of North Baltimore entered the exit ramp from I-75 to State Route 18 driving the wrong way in a Jeep Patriot.

Police say Woodruff drove the wrong way for a short while before crashing into a semi driven by 42-year-old Eric Wilson of Wixom, Michigan.

Police say Wilson attempted to swerve to miss the Jeep, but the vehicle crashed into the semi head-on.

Police say 20-year-old Sarina Sangal of Maumee was driving a Toyota Camry and 22-year-old Kurtis Lucht of Deerfield, Michigan was driving a Chevy Impala when the crash occurred near them.

Police say the two both swerved to avoid hitting the semi, but the Camry hit the Impala in the process.

Police say both Woodruff and Wilson suffered minor injuries and were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Neither Sangal nor Lucht were injured. All parties involved were wearing seat belts.

Police say drugs and/or alcohol do not seem to be a factor in the crash.

Woodruff was cited for driving the wrong direction on the interstate.
