State Police say three people were injured in a two-vehicle crash at Route 37 and 161 south of Salem during the noon hour Wednesday.

Preliminary investigative details indicate 80-year-old Ramona Oberlohr of Louisville was traveling southbound on Route 37 and failed to stop at the stop sign and t-boned a westbound car on Route 161 driven by 32-year-old Nancy Kollak of Fairfield. Police say Kollak had stopped at the stop sign before continuing into the intersection.

Upon impact, both cars spun around. Kollak's car left the roadway and struck a utility pole. The utility pole snapped, dropping the center overhanging flashing red light to the roadway.

Oberlohr was transported to Salem Township Hospital. Kollack and a passenger in her car, 41-year-old Jason Carter of Kell, were transported to SSM Health St.Mary's Hospital in Centralia. Carter was later airlifted to St. Louis University Hospital for treatment.

Oberlohr was ticketed for disobeying a traffic control device.
