A 2004 Mack dump truck was headed north on Ohio 19, hauling a full load of asphalt, when at about 1:30 p.m. it overturned and was struck by a southbound 2002 International truck, troopers said. The International was hauling items for FedEx. The crash scene was just north of Salem-Carroll Road in Carroll Township.

The driver of the delivery truck, Andrew Everett, 29, of Toledo, was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. He suffered serious injuries and was flown by medical helicopter to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo, troopers said.

The passenger in his truck — Anthony Robbins, of Toledo — jumped out of the vehicle just before the collision, troopers said. He sustained minor injuries.

The driver of the dump truck — Eric Duncan, 39, of Toledo — was taken by ambulance to the same hospital in Toledo. It’s unknown if he was wearing a seat belt, troopers said.

Ottawa County deputies, Carroll Township police and firefighters, state transportation workers and Ottawa County EMA all assisted at the scene. Alcohol and drugs are not suspected factors, and the crash remains under investigation, troopers said.
