A man was transported by medical helicopter after a two-vehicle wreck on SR 138 near Greenfield in Ross County Tuesday afternoon.
Sgt. Shawn Shanks of the Greenfield Police Department told The Times-Gazette on scene that a white Ford truck, headed southbound on SR 138 just north of SR 28, drove left of center and sideswiped a northbound red GMC SUV with two adults and three children inside.
After the collision, which demolished a trailer being pulled by the SUV, the truck continued for about 400 yards even after losing a wheel, crossing SR 28 and coming to rest in a gravel lot on Rapid Ford Road.
Shanks said the driver of the truck was transported via LifeFlight to Kettering Medical Center.
All the occupants of the SUV were uninjured, according to authorities on scene.
Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper Quinn Dunn said an open container was found inside the truck, and drugs and alcohol are suspected to have been a factor in the accident.
Authorities were unable to provide identification for the driver of the truck, although the driver of the SUV identified himself as Mark Mootispaw, 48, of Bainbridge.
Dunn said charges will be filed against the driver of the truck pending investigation.
The Greenfield Police Department responded to the wreck alongside the Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District.
