ALBION – Three people were injured in accident at about 2:40 p.m. this afternoon on Route 31, just west of Long Bridge Road near the 4-H fairgrounds.

The driver of the white vehicle, a GMC Terrain SUV, was getting mail and made a 90-degree turn on 31 and was struck by an oncoming Ford Ranger pickup truck, a deputy on the scene said.

The passenger in the Terrain, the grandmother of the driver, needed to be extricated by Albion firefighters. She was taken by Mercy Flight helicopter to a hospital.

The drivers of both the SUV and pickup truck were also taken by ambulance, COVA and the Medina Fire Department, to hospitals.

No information was available about the extent of the injuries.
