Helicopter Called for a Crash on Route 50


Vinton County – Emergency medical has been called in from both Ross and Vinton county on US Route 50 around 10:30 this morning.

According to early reports, the crash occurred around 527 US Route 50 where Vinton responded and called Ross County as mutual aid to the location. The report said that at least one person is entrapped and needing to be extricated. Firefighters on the scene called for a medical helicopter.

Medflight gave a 30-minute estimated arrival that they approved because they think that’s how much time it will take to get him out of the vehicle.

Please avoid the area as the crash will most likely shut down the highway for some time.
