Crash closes 73


A one-vehicle crash injured the driver and left SR 73 in Chester Twp. closed Monday morning. According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the driver was eastbound when he apparently went off the left side of the road, re-entered the road and then went off the right side down an embankment (in the photo, near where the OSHP patrol car is parked), and struck a culvert (shown between the emergency worker with his back to the camera and the crashed truck), launching it up and then down where it came to rest near a creek. The vehicle is shown after it had been pulled up to the road by a tow truck. The driver was reportedly alert and talking when he was transported by Chester Township EMS.
