LORAIN COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

Six people were seriously injured in an accident at the intersection of State Route 18 and Quarry Road in Wellington Township including four students from Ashland University.

According to the Elyria Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the wreck occurred around 8 p.m. Friday, May 2.

Troopers said 56-year-old Mark Zacharias of Wellington, was driving westbound on State Route 18, when his pickup truck struck a vehicle headed northbound on Quarry Road in the intersection.

Both Zacharias and his passenger, 55-year-old Elizabeth Zacharias were transported to Mercy Allen Hospital in Oberlin, Ohio, and later flown to Cleveland MetroHealth Medical Center.

A West Virginia woman, 20-year-old Madeline Humphrey Elkins was driving the other vehicle. Humphrey and her three passengers, 21-year-old Paige Gorsuch, Rose Sepsey and Andrew Heim, were all flown to Cleveland Metro Hospital and are listed in critical condition.
