WOOD COUNTY, Ohio — The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a serious three-vehicle crash involving a fire truck that took place Saturday night near Pemberville Road in Lake Township. 

Police say a Lake Township Fire truck was westbound on SR-795 responding to an emergency while two cars driven by Jacob Hazel, 23, of Elmore and Alyce Fielding, 66, of Genoa were eastbound. 

Fielding stopped for the firetruck when she was struck by Hazel in the rear. She went off the right side of the road into a ditch and Hazel went left of center and was struck by the truck, according to police.

None of the firefighters were injured in the crash. Hazel and a passenger, Kristina David, 24, of Pemberville were taken to the hospital suffering from life-threatening injuries. All other people involved were taken to the hospital but did not suffer from life-threatening injuries. 

Police say alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash

The Ohio State Highway Patrol was assisted on scene by Lake Township Police Department, Lake Township Fire Department, Northwood Fire and Rescue Department, and Allen- Clay Joint Fire District.
