MINSTER — Two drivers were transported by medical helicopter to a regional hospital after a two-vehicle collision Wednesday afternoon near Minster.

According to a report from the Wapakoneta Post of the Ohio Highway Patrol, at 12:17 p.m., Christopher Blumenstock, of Minster, was driving a 2001 Honda Odyssey and traveling east on Ohio 119 when he attempted to pass another vehicle. Blumenstock’s vehicle struck a 2005 Chevy Impala that was driven by Caitlin Gross, of Sidney, who was traveling west on Ohio 119.

Blumenstock’s vehicle struck the Impala head-on, traveled off the right side of the road, struck a ditch and came to rest in a field. Blumenstock and Gross were taken via Care Flight to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton for incapacitating injuries. Two passengers in Gross’ vehicle — Nora Gross, 2, and Brandon Gross, an infant — were taken to Joint Township District Memorial Hospital in St. Marys for possible injuries.

Sgt. Brian Jordan said this morning the collision remained under investigation.
