FOREST PARK, Ohio (FOX19) - A woman is fighting for her life after she was critically hurt in a crash with a concrete truck in Forest Park Wednesday morning, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.

Nancy Welch, 59, of Cincinnati rear-ended a concrete truck stopped with flashers on in a lane on eastbound West Kemper Road about 5 a.m., sheriff’s officials said.

Her eastbound 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser became lodged underneath the 2017 Terex Advance concrete mixer, according to a news release.

She was trapped for about 50 minutes before Forest Park firefighters were able to extricate her, sheriff’s officials wrote.

Air Care responded and flew her to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where she is listed in critical condition.

It took a while to stabilize her before they could lift off, according to the sheriff’s office.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation by the sheriff’s Traffic Safety Unit.

Welch wore her seat belt and drugs and alcohol are not believed to be factors, the release states.
