MARYSVILLE — Two people were injured after a car struck a tree about 12:57 p.m. Wednesday on U.S. Route 33 near U.S. Route 36.

The Marysville Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol reports that driver Lynette Bichan-Abke, 53, of Zanesfield was traveling in a 2012 Honda Pilot in the eastbound lanes of U.S. 33. At the same time, driver Jocelyn Carter, 37, of Marysville was traveling eastbound beside her in a 2003 GM Envoy.

Reports indicate that Bichan-Abke went left of center, which forced Carter’s vehicle off the right side of the roadway. Her car crashed into a sign and struck a tree head on.

Carter was transported by MedFlight with serious injuries to the Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University. Her passenger, Hillary Senediak, 34, of Marysville was also injured and taken by Jerome Township medics to Dublin Methodist Hospital.

Bichan-Abke was not injured, and her four teenage passengers also were not harmed.

All drivers and passengers were reportedly wearing seat belts.

Bichan-Abke was cited for stay in marked lanes of traffic.
