ASHLAND, OH - The Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Ashland Police Department, and the Ashland Fire Department with Ashland EMS responded to a three-vehicle collision at the intersection of State Route 250 and the Southbound entrance ramp to I-71 on Saturday afternoon.

Scott Kuzak, age 22, and Kelsi Karl, age 21, both from Wellington, Ohio were in a 2012 Mazda3 going East on State Route 250. Charles Schultz, age 33 of Pickerington, Ohio and his wife were going Westbound on State Route 250 in a 2013 Hyundai Elantra.

Schultz attempted to turn left onto the I-71 Southbound entrance ramp, failing to yield the right away to Kuzak’s Mazda.

The Mazda struck the Elantra on the passenger's side. This caused it to spin into a 2016 Nissan Frontier driven by Clarence Jackson, age 69 of Circleville, Ohio, who was at the light for the exit ramp of I-71 Southbound.

Kuzak and Karl were transported by Ashland EMS to University Hospitals Samaritan Medical Center with minor injuries.

Ashland Post of the Highway Patrol said, “all the drivers were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.”

Schultz was cited for failure to yield.
