HAMILTON, Ohio -- A mobile meth lab was found after two 19-year-olds crashed their car into an electric pole along Hamilton-Richmond Road north of Hamilton, partially snapping the pole in half.

The female driver was pinned in the car, and it took crews an hour to cut her out. She was conscious and talking with deputies, but was transported by air care to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

A male passenger was taken by ambulance to Fort Hamilton Hospital. During the investigation of the crash, deputies found a mobile meth lab in a backpack in the car with Coleman camping fuel, muriatic acid and pseudoephedrine. A team had to neutralize the acid.  

Hamilton-Richmond Road was closed while officials investigated.
