Pickup truck rolls over on I-75 in Lima; 2 injured

LIMA, Ohio Two people were seriously hurt yesterday when their pickup went off I-75 and overturned just north of Lima, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.

The driver and passenger, whose names were not available last night, were taken to Lima Memorial Hospital, where they were admitted to the intensive care unit, troopers at the patrol s Lima post said.

The truck was southbound near the Bluelick Road exit about 11:45 a.m. when it went off the right side of the interstate, struck the end of a guardrail, and then struck a bridge. The truck rolled over several times, and the passenger, who was riding in the front seat, was thrown from the vehicle, troopers said.

Neither person was wearing a seat belt, and alcohol was believed to have been a factor in the crash, troopers said.
