Three injured in crash
On Thursday at 10:47 a.m. a grey Ford F-150 was reported as crashed on Ohio 7 just north of Addison. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP), the vehicle was occupied by three persons, two of which were reportedly not wearing seat belts. The driver, Harry McKinney, 60, of Crown City, was reportedly wearing a seatbelt and transported by squad to Holzer Medical Center. Shannon Gillenwater, 40, of Gallipolis and Tesa Schoolcraft, 39, of Bidwell, were both transported by MedFlight to St. Mary’s Hospital in Huntington, W.Va. OSHP reports Gillenwater and Schoolcraft were reportedly not wearing seatbelts and had to be extracted from the vehicle.
OSHP responded to the scene, as did the Gallipolis Fire Department, Gallia and Mason County EMS and Gallia County ODOT.
According to a press release from OSHP, it is suspected that alleged drug impairment contributed to the cause of the incident, which is still under investigation at this time.
