John R. Conner, 21, of Belle Center, was transported by Perry Township EMS to the OSU Wexner Medical Center for treatment of non-incapacitating injuries sustained in a crash early this morning.
Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office report he was operating a northbound sport utility vehicle about 2:10 a.m. on State Route 292 just south of County Road 119 when he drove off the left side of the road, struck a telephone pole and then went into the ditch.
The vehicle overturned and came to rest in a field. Damage was heavy to the SUV, which was towed from the scene.
The driver was not wearing his seat belt and he was cited for failure to control, deputies said.
