One person life flighted after crash near Kasbeer

Posted by wlpo on June 18, 2015

One person was life flighted from the scene after a semi and car collided in Bureau County.

Ohio, Walnut and Princeton firefighters all responded around noon Thursday to the accident on Route 26 about a mile south of Kasbeer. The semi, which had been hauling grain, allegedly hit the driver’s side of the car and then burst into flames. The fire was put out in about a half hour.

A person in the car was trapped and had to be pulled out by paramedics and firefighters. That person was then flown to a hospital.

The Bureau County Sheriff’s Office hasn’t released any of the names involved in the crash.
