CENTERBURG — U.S. 36/Ohio 3 was temporarily closed Tuesday following a one-vehicle crash near Tucker Road.
The driver of the commercial vehicle was headed southwest on U.S. 36/Ohio 3 when he exited the roadway. The crash was reported to the Mount Gilead State Highway Patrol at 11:04 a.m. Tuesday.
The vehicle struck a small structure, which State Highway Patrol officers on scene said was empty at the time of impact.
A spokesperson for the patrol stated that ODOT would be diverting traffic on U.S. 36/Ohio 3 in order to remove the truck. Blubaugh Body and Frame Repair was on scene assisting with the removal, and a representative told the News that phone wires were caught on the vehicle and would need to be removed before the vehicle could be moved.
The driver was taken to Knox Community Hospital with minor injuries, according to officers on scene. No other vehicles were involved and no additional injuries were reported.
A second call to the Mount Gilead Post of the State Highway Patrol seeking further detail was not returned as of press time.
