GOSHEN TWP., (WKBN) – A little before 11 p.m. Wednesday night, a vehicle traveling northbound on State Route 45 crashed into another vehicle that was stopped on the roadway.

Hannah Koontz, 22, of Newton Falls, was driving along Route 45 when she hit the stopped vehicle that was in the northbound lane, according to Ohio State Highway Patrol. The impact was at Milepost 3, north of Calla Road.

The impact caused the stopped vehicle — operated by Christina Brown, 34, of Leavittsburg — to slide off the east side of the roadway and into a private yard.

A 3-month-old baby from Brown’s vehicle was thrown out of the vehicle and flown via medical helicopter to Akron Children’s Hospital. Highway Patrol said the baby is doing OK, but the child didn’t appear to be properly strapped into the car seat at the time of the crash.

Brown and four children were taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Boardman. Koontz was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Youngstown.

Highway Patrol’s Canfield Post responded to the accident and is still investigating.

No one has been charged.
