A 2004 Dodge Dakota pickup truck headed south struck a car trailer towed by full-size Chevrolet pickup truck headed south, which caused the Dakota’s right front tire to come off. The driver, identified as 28-year-old Kyle A. Casdorph of Troy, then lost control and went head-on into a 2016 Jeep Cherokee headed north driven by 64-year-old Pamela C. Maxwell of Huber Heights, according to a crash report.

The Dakota then burst into flames, Edmondson said.

Casdorph was able to get out on his own. Maxwell was pulled out by bystanders, including the truck driver from Casstown whose trailer was struck, the deputy said.

Casdorph and Maxwell were flown by CareFlight with serious injuries.

A crash reconstruction team is investigating the crash, Edmondson said.
