WELLINGTON, OH (WOIO) -

At 10:30 a.m. Sunday May 4, the nursing supervisor for MetroHealth Medical Center reported that one of the six people in Friday's Lorain County two-vehicle crash has died from his injuries.

The young man that passed away is 21-year-old Andrew P. Keim from Millersburg, Ohio.  He was a student at Ashland University.

Martha Broud could hear the sirens blaring to and from the intersection of State Route 18 and Quarry Road in Wellington Township.

"All leaving town and it was like, 'Oh boy. What's happened'?" described Broud. 

Police said 20-year-old Madeline Humphrey was driving the Subaru with three other Ashland University students on Quarry Road and she didn't stop at the stop sign. They collided with a Ford F-250 pick-up truck that was heading west on State Route 18.

Mark Zacharias and his wife Elizabeth were in the pick-up. They both survived, but Mark is still in the hospital.

So, are the two others who were traveling in the car with Humphrey. They are 21-year-old Paige Gorsuch and 21-year-old Rose Sepsey.  

All six people involved in the accident were LifeFlighted to MetroHealth Medical Center following the collision which occurred on State Route 18 and Quarry Road around 8 p.m. on Friday, May 2.

The nursing supervisor also tells our Denise Zarrella that the driver of the 2004 F-250 pickup truck, 56-year-old Mark Zacharias, is listed in fair condition and his passenger, 55-year-old Elizabeth Zacharias has been discharged.

Our Denise Zarrella contacted Elizabeth Zacharias. She was too shaken up to be interviewed on camera, but told 19 Action News she's traveled the intersection hundreds of times without any problems. Neighbors say they've worried about something like this happening.  

"If you are not familiar with the area, and being dark and you don't see that little stop sign after the railroad tracks... I'm sure it probably is quite dangerous," adds Broud.

Investigators say alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash.

Humphrey, who is from Elkins, West Virginia, and Sepsey who is from Youngstown both remain in serious condition. Gorsuch has been upgraded to fair.

St. John's LifeFlight, Cleveland Metro LifeFlight, and University Life Flight responded to transport the victims.

Alcohol is not believed to have played a role in the crash.

There is no confirmation as to who was or wasn't wearing their seatbelt.

The investigation continues.
