MADISON COUNTY, Ohio - Drugs are suspected to be a contributing factor in a crash that injured a 2-year-old boy in Madison County on Tuesday, according to the Ohio State High Highway Patrol.
OSHP said the crash happened around 1:10 p.m. on U.S. Route 42, just south of Interstate 70.
A woman in a car was stopped on US-42 to make a left turn into a gas station parking lot when a driver in an SUV rear-ended the car, OSHP said.
The car was pushed into the southbound lane and into a van.
OSHP said the boy, who was in the back of the car in a child safety seat, was flown to Nationwide Children's Hospital in serious condition.
The driver and a front-seat passenger in the car were taken to Grant Medical Center to be treated for injures that are not life-threatening, according to OSHP.
The van driver was taken to Madison Health, also with non-life-threatening injuries, while the SUV driver was not hurt, OSHP said.
OSHP said the crash remains under investigation.
No charges have been filed.
