Pickaway County – Semi Rollover, Driver Medically Flown with Serious Injuries


A serious accident unfolded in Pickaway County today, leaving a man severely injured after his semi-truck overturned on Crownover Mill Road.

The incident occurred around 2 p.m., prompting a flurry of emergency responses. A distress call reported a semi rollover with entrapment and fire at 11101 Crownover Mill Road in Perry Township. Upon arrival, first responders encountered a chaotic scene: the semi had veered off the road, flipping onto its top, trapping the driver inside. The driver, who sustained a severe head injury, required immediate medical attention.

Local fire departments sprang into action, working tirelessly to extricate the injured man from the wreck. Meanwhile, additional support was summoned to tackle a fire sparked by the crash.

Amidst the chaos, Medflight helicopters descended onto the scene to airlift the injured driver to a Columbus hospital, where he was admitted in serious condition.

As the day wore on, the aftermath of the accident continued to disrupt normalcy. By 5 p.m., Crownover Mill Road remained closed, strewn with gravel from the overturned semi. Compounding the situation, downed power lines plunged the Williamsport area into darkness, prompting a concerted effort by South Central crews to restore electricity to the affected neighborhoods.

Responding to the emergency were a multitude of units, Southwest Pickaway and Tri-County including Pickaway Sheriff Deputies, Southwest Pic-way, Williamsport, Deer Creek, and Circleville, underscoring the collaborative effort in managing the crisis.
