TOLEDO, Ohio — State troopers say several people have been injured in a crash involving a car and a truck hauling a horse trailer.

The State Highway Patrol says the crash happened before 10 a.m. Sunday on Route 295 in Lucas County in northwest Ohio.

The patrol says a Honda Civic failed to yield the right of way at an intersection and was struck by the truck.

The patrol says the car’s driver was taken to a Toledo hospital with serious injuries. Troopers said his passenger, who was not wearing a seat belt, was taken by helicopter to a hospital. Two other passengers were also taken to local hospitals for minor injuries.

The patrol said the truck’s driver and passengers also were taken to the hospital. A horse in the trailer appeared uninjured.
