WARSAW — Four people were injured with two of them flown from the scene of a two-vehicle accident Wednesday afternoon at the intersection of U.S. 30 and CR 325E, Warsaw.

At 1:19 p.m., Kosciusko County Central Dispatch received a 911 call of a personal injury accident at the U.S. 30 and CR 325E intersection, according to information provided by Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department Public Information Officer Sgt. Doug Light.

A white 2014 Ford Econoline van was westbound on U.S. 30 when a black GMC Yukon was northbound crossing U.S. 30. The black GMC pulled into the path of the white Ford. The GMC was hit broadside, hit a guardrail, went over the guardrail and came to rest down an embankment. The white Ford spun and came to rest near the intersection, according to Light.

There were three people in the GMC Yukon. One man was ejected from the vehicle and one woman had to be extricated from the vehicle. All three were conscious at the scene. Two of the people were flown from the scene to Fort Wayne hospitals, one by Samaritan and the other by Lutheran. The third person was taken by ground ambulance.

The driver of the white Ford was taken by ground ambulance to Lutheran Kosciusko Hospital.
