MARION, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say three people have been killed and 11 others injured in a fiery, multi-vehicle crash in north-central Ohio.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol says the crash happened Monday afternoon on state Route 423 in Marion.
The victims have been identified as 45-year-old Johanna Sisson, 50-year-old Edwin Sisson and 27-year-old Amanda Sisson, all of Marion.
Troopers say the crash happened when a car sideswiped another vehicle before continuing down the road and hitting four other vehicles. Two of those vehicles burst into flames as a result of the collision.
Authorities say a total of eleven people were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
It's unclear if charges will be filed.
The crash remains under investigation.
