Two Drivers in Serious Condition Following Collision in Cuyahoga Falls

A man and woman -- who have not yet been identified -- were taken to Akron City Hospital after their cars collided on Thursday evening.

Thirteen firefighters worked quickly on Thursday evening to cut a man and woman out of two cars that collided with each other at the corner of Main Street and Orchard Avenue.

Both drivers are in serious condition and are being treated by trauma staff at Akron City Hospital, according to Capt. George Sewald.

The woman, who was driving a minivan, sustained head and arm injuries; the man, who was driving a mid-sized car, suffered mulitple arm and leg fractures and sustained internal injuries.

The accident occured at 5:05 p.m., and within 15 minutes of the crash, firefighters had pulled each driver from their car.

"It hasn't rained much the past couple weeks and it looks like one of the cars hydroplaned and crashed into the other," said Sewald.

The accident has been cleared and traffic has reopened at the intersection.
