A Delaware man was still in critical condition Thursday after he was involved in a traffic crash on Marysville Road Tuesday afternoon.

Andrew Hartman, 21, of Delaware, was leaving Midway Market on Marysville Road in Ostrander Tuesday afternoon around 4 p.m. in his 2004 Buick LeSabre when he turned into the path of a westbound Dodge truck, according to troopers from the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The truck hit Hartman from the side and Hartman was unresponsive when troopers first arrived. Troopers said Hartman was trapped in his car and had to be extracted before he could be treated.

Hartman was flown by helicopter to OSU Wexner Medical Center.

Hospital staff said Thursday morning that Hartman was still in critical condition.

The occupants of the truck, driver Kevin Taylor, 43, and Sandra Taylor, 47, both of Woodstock, Ohio, were not injured.

Troopers said an investigation is continuing and no charges had been filed Thursday.
