There was only one occupant inside of the Cadillac and two in the Ford Sedan.

A MedFlight helicopter was initially on standby for one of the individuals involved in the crash, but was canceled soon after.

The driver of the Cadillac and the passenger of the sedan were transported with minor, non-life threatening injuries, officials say.

The crash remains under investigation by the Ohio Highway State Patrol, but they say alcohol is not a factor in the collision.
