Two Parkersburg residents are hospitalized after a fatal accident Tuesday near Newark, Ohio.

Forty-five-year-old William Wick of Buckeye Lake, Ohio was killed when his Ford Explorer went out of control and struck a 1993 Nissan the two Parkersburg men were riding in.

Twenty-seven-year-old Daniel Poole, the car's driver, is in serious condition at Grant Medical Center in Columbus.

His passenger, 23-year-old Bobby Kimball, is in critical condition at Ohio State University Medical Center's surgical intensive care unit.

The Ohio Highway Patrol says the accident happened shortly before 3:30 Tuesday afternoon, and closed the westbound lanes of I-70 for more than two hours.
