The Darke County Sheriff’s Office says someone called around 7:50 a.m. Tuesday to report a crash in the 7000 block of Hollansburg-Sampson Road in Arcanum.

Authorities say a Chevy Cobalt was going west when it crossed the center line and smashed into a Saturn Outlook. The Cobalt caught on fire after the accident.

According to authorities, someone driving by stopped to help the woman out of the Cobalt.

Careflight was called to the scene of the crash as well.

One woman was taken to Miami Valley Hospital. The other was taken to Wayne Healthcare, before being transported to Miami Valley Hospital for treatment. Authorities say both women are expected to recover from their injuries.

Hollansburg-Sampson Road was closed at the point of the accident due to gas and debris in the road. The road has since reopened.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

The Darke County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by Arcanum Fire, Arcanum Rescue, Greenville Rescue and CareFlight.
