Woman injured in one-vehicle crash

Emily Petsko/Observer-Reporter One woman was seriously injured when this car went off Route 40 in Buffalo Township Friday morning.

One woman was flown to an area hospital about 9:30 a.m. Friday after the vehicle she was in crashed on Route 40 near McGuffey High School. A firefighter at the scene said the woman’s injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, and two other people – a woman and infant boy – were uninjured.

The boy was taken by ambulance to Washington Hospital as a precaution. The car was headed east when it spun, crossed two westbound lanes and came to rest against a tree. The cause of the accident was unknown.

Claysville and Taylorstown volunteer fire departments assisted at the scene and directed traffic while the right westbound lane of Route 40 remained closed.
