A man was transported by KLG Ambulance to St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown, and a woman was taken to Salem Regional Medical center following a three-vehicle crash at McCracken’s Corners around 8 p.m. Wednesday. Leetonia Fire/EMS responded to extricate the woman from her Chevrolet pickup. Preliminary reports indicated the woman who was westbound on Salem Grange Road stopped at the stop sign at state Route 45 and then proceeded to pull out into the path of a Buick Roadmaster heading north on state Route 45. The two vehicles collided and then slid into the path of a tractor trailer traveling south on state Route 45. The driver of the semi was not injured. Trooper Jodi Bowlen of the Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. (Salem News photo by Patti Schaeffer)
