OTTAWA, Ohio — A local man was in serious condition last night after he was trapped in his burning vehicle following a collision yesterday morning.
Gerald Schumaker, 46, was westbound on U.S. 224 about 11:30 a.m. when his vehicle crossed the center line and collided head-on with a tractor-trailer driven by Arnoldas Urbonavicius, 43, of Tinley Park, Ill.
Troopers at the Ohio Highway Patrol's Lima post said at least three truck drivers and people from a nearby business used extinguishers to put out the blaze.
Mr. Schumaker was taken to Medical College of Ohio Hospitals in Toledo.
