2 men injured, power cut in NE Ohio crash

WARREN, Ohio (AP) — Two northeast Ohio men were in critical condition after an injury crash in Trumbull County that cut power to nearby residents.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol reports it is investigating after the one-vehicle crash around 7 p.m. Friday on Highland Avenue south of Sixth Street in Warren Township.

Driver Charles J. Zell Sr., 58, and his passenger, 38-year-old Charles J. Zell Jr., both of Warren, were injured in the crash and being treated at area hospitals. Neither was wearing a seatbelt.

Authorities say Zell Sr. was driving a 2004 Dodge Ram pickup southbound on Highland when he went off the right side of the road and struck a utility pole. The vehicle sustained heavy front-end damage.

Ohio Edison was working to restore power in the area.

Toxicology results were incomplete.
