COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Six teens were sent to the hospital Tuesday after a crash with a fire truck.

Police say a Colerain Township fire truck operated by Michael Adler, 40, who was on duty at the time, was traveling on Old Colerain just before 5 p.m. Tuesday when a GMC Jimmy operated by Dominic Cavallaro, 17, was attempting to turn left in a driveway in order to turn around. Cavallaro did not see the oncoming fire truck, causing Adler to strike the SUV on the passenger side.

After the collision, the GMC caught on fire. Adler pulled a fire extinguisher from his truck and put out the fire.

A total of six teenagers were in the SUV at the time. Cavallaro was transported to Bethesda North in stable condition. He was later released. Two other teens, Zachery Schmidt, 16, and Michael Staley, 17, were extracted from the SUV and taken to University Hospital in stable condition. Two more teens, Patrick Shannon, 15, and Kelsi Howell, 16, were taken to Children's Hospital, where they were treated and released. Jonathan Garrison, 17, was taken to University Hospital in critical condition.

Police say they believe none of the teens were wearing their seat belts, and two of them were in the cargo area of the SUV at the time of the crash.

Adler was treated and released from the hospital.

Drugs and/or alcohol are not believed to be factors. The crash remains under investigation.
