SR-15 Closed near Findlay following roll-over crash
Fri, 31 May 2013 00:55:41 GMT —
Update: SR-15 re-opened around 10:30 pm on Thursday night.
Just before 8:30 p.m., on Thursday, SR-15 in both directions was shut down due to a roll-over accident.
According to ODOT the roadway was closed between County Road 8 and State Route 37, near mile marker 21.
The Hancock County Sheriff's Office says the closure was due to a single-vehicle crash that happened around 7:45 along SR-15, just east of TR 140 in Jackson Township.
Investigators say that 46-year-old Matthew Dixon, of Marion, lost control of the Freightliner he was driving and went off the roadway into the median.
His vehicle rolled over once before coming to a stop.
Dixon had to be rescued from the truck and was taken to Blanchard Valley Hospital with unknown injuries.
The roadway was closed for about 2 hours while emergency crews responded to the scene.
