On May 16,2020, the sheriff’s office received a 911 call in reference to a two-vehicle accident with injuries at the intersection of State Route 60 and Bethlehem Township Road 1192. Dispatch was also advised that two occupants were trapped in one of the vehicles.

After the initial investigation by deputies it was determined that a vehicle being operated by Mary Melrose of Warsaw, was traveling North on State Route 60 when she attempted to make a left hand turn onto Township Road 1192 and turned in front of a vehicle being operated by Scott Cannon of Warsaw, who was traveling south on State Route 60. Cannon was not wearing his seat belt and was unable to stop, striking the vehicle being operated by Melrose.

After being struck, the vehicle being operated by Melrose spun and came to rest on the driver’s side, trapping both Melrose and her husband, Frederick Melrose, in the vehicle. Both occupants were wearing their seat belts, and after the efforts of emergency personnel, the occupants were extricated from the vehicle and transported to Med Flight helicopters who transported both patients to OSU.

Assisting deputies at the scene was the Walhonding Valley Fire District, Coshocton County EMS, Prince’s Wrecker Service, Coshocton County React and Med Flight. This incident remains under investigation by your Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office.
