Bolivar, Ohio (WTUZ) – A man will receive a citation after crossing lanes on Interstate 77. 

No one was seriously hurt during a Sunday accident involving two-vehicles near Bolivar.

“We had two different vehicles that were both going southbound. Unit one was in the left lane. Unit one quickly made a cut to the right and stuck unit two. He drove off the roadway, struck a guardrail, [went] back across the roadway into the median, then back across the roadway again where at that time he struck an embankment.”

Trooper Thompson says that two people, both in the at-fault vehicle, received non-life threatening injuries and were taken to Mercy Hospital.
