Hazardous conditions blamed for rollover crash


UNION CITY — Hazardous road conditions may be to blame for a Sunday evening rollover crash that has left a driver injured near Union City, Ohio.

At approximately 5:54 p.m., emergency personnel from Union City Fire and Rescue responded along with Darke County deputies to the 1000 block of Beamsville Union City Road in reference to a single-vehicle rollover crash with injury.

According to the Darke County Sheriff’s Office, a preliminary investigation into the incident revealed a green 2000 Toyota Tacoma, driven by Joshua Vigil, 19, of Union City, was traveling eastbound on Beamsville Union City Road. Vigil failed to maintain control of his vehicle on ice-covered roadways, resulting in the Toyota traveling off the right side of the roadway and rolling at least once before coming to rest in a field.

Vigil was mechanically extricated from his vehicle by Union City Fire and Rescue prior to being transported to Wayne HealthCare in Greenville for what were described as minor injuries.

This incident remains under investigation by the Darke County Sheriff’s Office.
