LICKING COUNTY, OHIO (FOX19 NOW) -

Ohio State Highway Patrol are using an image as a warning to watch out for emergency vehicles on the side of the road this time of year.

An OSHP trooper and woman were injured after a semi-trailer collided with a cruiser on Interstate 70 in Granville, Ohio, Tuesday.

Troopers Rodney Hart, 45, was interviewing Shanice Parker, 25, of Zansville, Ohio, about a one-vehicle crash when a 2015 Kenworth semi-trailer struck Hart's cruiser.

According to OSHP, Eric Miller, 36, drove his semi through a safety zone of flares set in the roadway before it struck the cruiser and continued off the roadway, where it struck several trees and jack-knifed before coming to rest on the side of the roadway.

Trooper Hart was transported to Licking Memorial Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries and released, according to a release.

Parker was taken by Med Flight to OSU Medical Center, where she was listed in stable condition.

Miller was treated at the scene. He was cited for failure to maintain an assured clear distance ahead, failure to change lanes for a stationary public safety vehicle and driving a commercial vehicle with impaired alertness.

The crash remains under investigation.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol are reminding Ohioans that state law requires motorists to move over or slow down when approaching emergency vehicles with activated lights.
