ARCANUM - At 6:18 p.m., Saturday, Darke County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call of a one vehicle rollover on Otterbein Ithaca Road near Gordon Landis Road. Darke County Deputies, along with Arcanum Fire, Arcanum Rescue, Careflight and Greenville Rescue were all dispatched to the scene.

Preliminary investigation revealed a red 2000 Ford SUV, occupied by two juveniles and one adult, was traveling westbound on Otterbein Ithaca Road. The vehicle drove off the right (north) side of the roadway, jumping over a 30-foot creek bed and rolling multiple times. Excessive speed may be a factor in this accident.

One juvenile was transported by Careflight to Miami Valley where he is listed in fair condition. The other two occupants were transported, both by Arcanum Rescue, one to Wayne Hospital and the other to Miami Valley Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

This accident remains under investigation.
