ASHVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A couple in their 80s whose car was broadsided at a rural central Ohio intersection has died.

Pickaway County Sheriff Robert Radcliff says 87-year-old Arthur Deal and 86-year-old Ada Lou Deal died at a Columbus hospital where they were taken after the Wednesday crash near Ashville, south of Columbus.

Radcliff says the couple didn’t first appear badly injured after the accident. But once at the hospital, their conditions deteriorated.

Ada Deal died Wednesday night, and her husband died Thursday, according to the sheriff. They had been married for more than 60 years.

Radcliff says witnesses saw Ada Deal turn left in front of a van on a yellow light.

Two passengers in the van were hospitalized but expected to survive.
