MEDINA COUNTY, Ohio (WOIO) - A driver struck two construction vehicles and three construction workers early Wednesday morning, according to Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers.

Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. Ray Santiago said the accident happened around 7:25 a.m. on State Route 18 westbound between State Route 94 and State Road in Granger Township.

The workers were setting up a lane closure in the right lane.

Workers Amber Samara, 44, of East Cleveland, and Maurice Sullivan, 38, of Akron, were unloading traffic cones and signs from a Chevrolet Colorado.

According to troopers, a 37-year-old Middleburg Heights man was westbound on State Route 18 driving a Ford F-150 and struck a Ford Transit van stopped in the right lane.

The impact pushed the van into the Chevrolet Colorado, which then struck Samara and Sullivan.

The F-150 and the van then traveled off the right side of the road and struck the third worker, Angela Garcia, 45, of Warrensville Heights.

Troopers said all three workers were transported to local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The accident remains under investigation and no charges have been filed.
