POMEROY — One person was injured in a single vehicle crash on Monday afternoon near Pomeroy.
The crash occurred on State Route 7, just south of the intersection with State Route 124 in Salisbury Twp.
Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper Shawn Cunningham stated that the Subaru driven by Janet Leasure, 60, of Fleming, Ohio, traveled off the side of the roadway hit an embankment and ended up in the tree area.
Upon arrival, crews found a vehicle overturned on the ditch line with an occupant inside. EMS crews helped remove the patient due to the precarious position of the vehicle. The driver was taken from the scene by Meigs EMS and flown by Health Net to St. Marys Medical Center, according to a run report from the Pomeroy Fire Department.
Pomeroy Pumper 1 responded to the scene along with Meigs EMS, Portsmouth Ambulance, the Ohio State Highway Patrol and Meigs County EMA. Twelve Pomeroy Firemen responded to the call, which kept crews out approximately 30 minutes.
Cunningham said it is not known at this time what caused Leasure to drive off the roadway as troopers had not been able to speak with her as of Tuesday afternoon.
