HAMILTON – Three people were injured in a crash Saturday night in DeKalb County's Franklin Township.
The Dekalb County Sheriff's Department responded just after 6 p.m. to a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of County Road 4 and State Road 427. One vehicle flipped on its side in the intersection. A second vehicle was in a nearby field.
Deputies say 26-year-old Jonathan Alexander of Butler disregarded the stop sign at the intersection, hitting the second vehicle driven by 19-year-old Lucas Allen of Auburn.
Alexander was trapped inside the vehicle while it was on its side. Firefighters extricated him and he was transported to Parkview Regional Medical Center with back pain.
Allen suffered a laceration to the head. His passenger – 19-year-old Julianne Steinman of Auburn – had to be extricated from the vehicle by firefighters. Steinman suffered broken legs, a broken ankle and a fractured pelvis. Both Allen and Steinman were also taken to Parkview Regional. Steinman was air-lifted to the hospital.
