BROOKFIELD TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a crash involving a box truck and a semi at the intersection of state Route 82 and Warner Road.

According to a summary from a dispatcher’s report, someone called 911 around 10 a.m. to report that a Lazy Boy truck and a Pitt Ohio truck had collided.

Highway Patrol says Robert Arms, of Tarentum, Pa., was driving northbound in a box truck on Warner Road and had stopped at the intersection of Route 82. Wayne Ayers, of West Middlesex, was traveling westbound on Route 82 in a semi truck, approaching the intersection.

Investigators say Arms failed to yield and pulled into the path of the semi and was struck. Both vehicles traveled off the northwest corner of the intersection.

The box truck was transporting furniture, and the semi was transporting cosmetics.

Both drivers had serious injuries and were taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Youngstown. A passenger of the box truck, James George, 41, from Tarentum, Pa, was also transported to St. Elizabeth with serious injuries.

Ayers and George were in critical condition on Wednesday night, and Arms was in serious condition, according to a St. Elizabeth spokeswoman.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts, but the passenger was not wearing a seat belt, according to Highway PAtrol

The crash remains under investigation, and charges are pending.

The Vienna and Brookfield fire departments were also called out to assist with the crash.
