SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ind. (WANE) — A crash between a 15-passenger van and a pickup truck has left two men in critical condition. The crash happened at the intersection of Springfield Center Road and Spencerville Road, just northeast of Grabill in Springfield Township.
According to Sgt. Adam Griffith with the Allen County Sheriff’s Department, a preliminary investigation indicates the van was traveling northbound on Spencerville and the pickup truck was westbound on Springfield Center. The driver of the pickup truck had a stop sign and the driver of the van did not have one.
“It appears the truck entered the intersection and struck the van, causing it to overturn,” Sgt. Griffith said in a press release.
Medics transported the drivers of both vehicles and a passenger in the van to a local hospital. All are men involved. The driver of the van and passenger were originally listed in serious condition, but have since been downgraded to critical condition, according to Sgt. Griffith. The driver of the truck was listed in fair condition.
Police closed down the intersection and are continuing to investigate the scene of the crash. It has since reopened. The crash remains under investigation.
