A crash that sent five people to the hospital near Ladd was allegedly caused by a drunk driver.

State Police say Rose Storm of Princeton was westbound on Interstate 80 Saturday morning when she lost control and crossed into the path of eastbound James Burns of Wyanet.  The two collided head on.

Storm and her passenger, a 13-year old girl also of Princeton were thrown from their car.  Storm is in critical condition at St. Francis Medical Center.  The girl was taken to St. Margaret’s Hospital.  Burns and his two passengers, a 9 year old girl and 6 year old boy also from Wyanet were all taken to Perry Memorial Hospital.

Storm was ticketed for DUI, not wearing a seatbelt and violating the child restraint law.
