One person is in the hospital following a commercial truck crash. It happened just before 7 o’clock Thursday morning along Scott Featner Road in Mingo Junction. A water truck went over a hill and down an embankment.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol, New Alexandria, Brilliant, and Hillndale fire departments all responded to the scene.
OSHP says the driver of the truck had minor injuries. The passenger was flown by medical helicopter.
Until recently, most commercial trucks wouldn’t use Scott Featner Road, but because of a bridge replacement project, drivers don’t have a choice.
The County Road 74 bridge project is expected to take a little longer than a year.
