Man Airlifted after Hancock Co. Crash

A 51-year old Quincy man had to be airlifted to Blessing Hospital late last night after his car hit a utility pole and caught fire, near Hamilton.

Hancock County Sheriff’s deputies say Paul Mlyniec was driving south on County Road 1100-East when the 2008 Kia left the pavement and crashed.

A passerby pulled Mlyniec from the vehicle and away from the flames. Authorities say the victim was wearing a seatbelt and they continue their investigation.
