Two people were air lifted from a two vehicle accident scene over the weekend.

The Steuben County Sheriff’s Deputies and other agencies responded to a report of a personal injury accident at the intersection of State Road 120 and County Road 600 East just before 10 p.m. Saturday night.

First units on the scene found a 2004 Pontiac and a 2013 Ford F150 that had been involved in a traffic accident. Emergency response units found the occupants of the Ford F150 pinned in the vehicle. Those individuals have been identified as Oliver Winter, age 18 of Coldwater, MI who was driving, and his passenger, Clarissa Sheppard, age 17 of Coldwater, MI.

Investigative reports by the Steuben County Sheriff's Department indicate that Winter was traveling north bound on County Road 600 East when he failed to yield the right of way of the east bound Pontiac driven by Christopher Hahn, age 20 of Defiance, OH.

As Winter crossed the intersection, his truck was struck by Hahn's Popntiac.

Winter lost control of the pick-up he was driving, and then struck a tree on the driver side pinning himself and Sheppard in the truck. After extrication both Winter and Sheppard were air lifted to a Fort Wayne hospital for treatment of the injuries.

Hahn, the driver of the Pontiac, and his passenger, Abigail Brink, age 21, also of Defiance, OH were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

All parties involved were wearing their seatbelts, and alcohol was not believed to be a factor.

Assisting units on the scene were the Steuben County Sheriff Office, Fremont Fire Department, Fremont Police Department, Angola Fire Department, Indiana Department of Natural Resources- Law Enforcement Division, Steuben County EMS, Hillsdale County EMS, & the Angola City Police Department.

The crash is still under investigation.
