Pickaway – Emergency squads responded to the area of US-23 and SR-22 for a vehicle that jumped over the embankment and into some water around 7:30
According to Law Enforcement on the scene, a male driver of a Volkwagon was heading Southbound on US-23 at a high rate of speed and attempted to merge onto the off-ramp to SR-22 by Downtown Circleville. The driver lost control of the vehicle because of the high speed and left the roadway. He then hit a dip between the on and off-ramps and went airborne crossing the on-ramp and jumping the guardrail into a steep embankment crashing and rolling the car. The vehicle traveled around 300 feet.
The driver was pinned inside the vehicle.
