Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office report he was operating a southbound car near State Route 287 when he traveled off the right side of the road, overcorrected, and then traveled off the left side. His vehicle struck a ditch and then overturned into a bean field.
Damage was heavy to the car, which was towed from the scene. The driver was wearing his seat belt.
Deputies contacted the farmer who owned the field, who reported approximately $200 worth of damage to his crops.
• Deputies also responded about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday to County Road 88 near U.S. Route 33 on a report of a non-injury crash in a road construction chip-seal zone.
Troy A. Harrod, 57, of Lima, reportedly was operating an eastbound pickup on C.R. 88 when he came upon a stopped Logan County vehicle operated by Cole P. Harbour, 18, of Rushsylvania, who had just stopped to direct traffic in the construction zone.
Harrod attempted to pass and his pickup and the Logan County pickup struck side mirrors, causing light damage to both vehicles. Deputies were unable to determine whether either driver had been left of center and no citations were issued.
