October 2nd, 2013 (West Liberty, OH) – A Macochee EMS ambulance crew responded to a single-vehicle accident at approximately 3:30 p.m. today. The accident occurred in front of 5230 US 68 S, just south of the intersection with County Road 30, between West Liberty and Bellefontaine.
The accident involved a single pickup truck, driven by a 45-year old male resident of Alger in Hardin County. The south-bound truck, pulling a flat-bed trailer, went off the right side of the highway, and broke off a power pole, bringing down the lines. The driver then over-corrected and skidded around such that the truck wound up facing north-bound on the opposite side of the road. The truck suffered damage from the jack-knifed trailer, as well as a blown tire.
