The Ohio State Highway Patrol Athens Post is investigating a two-vehicle crash that happened just after 8:30 p.m. Friday at the intersection of U.S. 33 westbound exit ramp and Chieftain Drive in Hocking County.

According to OSHP, a 1992 Ford F-150 truck being driven by George R. Tucker, 43 of Rockbridge, failed to stop at a stop sign while traveling northbound on U.S. 33 westbound exit ramp, and struck a 2007 Subaru Legacy.

The occupants of the Subaru Legacy included the driver Randy L. Poling, 44, and passengers Lisa M. Brookes, 36, Kristin Maynard, 11, and Wendy M. Blackburn, 38, all of Logan. 

Poling and Maynard received minor injuries and Maynard was transported to Hocking Valley Community Hospital.
