PIQUA — A 52-year-old Eaton man was transported by CareFlight following an incident where his vehicle rolled over him on Thursday morning.
Two people were inside a commercial truck on southbound Interstate 75 when there was a mechanical issue that caused them to exit the highway. Deputy Chief Marty Grove of the Piqua Police Department explained how they stopped on the exit and one man got underneath the vehicle to determine what the issue was with the vehicle when one of the dual wheels rolled over the victim. The accident was reported at approximately 11:44 a.m. Thursday on the exit ramp off of North County Road 25-A.
Following the accident, the Piqua Fire Department transported the man to the CareFlight landing zone in Piqua, and CareFlight then transported the man to Miami Valley Hospital.
The victim’s name is not being released at this time. The victim was conscious after the accident, he said, but no other information on his condition is available.
