Victim transported with unknown injuries following Sunday night crash

GUERNSEY COUNTY, Ohio -- A Salesville man was injured on Sunday night after being pinned under his car during a roll-over accident.

According to the State Highway Patrol, 58-year-old Wayne Owczarek was traveling northbound on Fairground Road at around 10:00 p.m. when he crossed the center line and drifted off of the roadway. Owczarek's Geo Tracker crossed through a ditch struck two fence posts, returned to the ditch and continued onto Fogle Road. Troopers say Owczarek was ejected from the vehicle as it rolled over, and was pinned beneath the Tracker when it came to rest.

Crews from the Antrim Volunteer Fire Department extracted Owczarek from beneath the vehicle before transporting him to Southeastern Med in Cambridge. Further information about his condition was not immediately available from the State Patrol or Southeastern Med.

State troopers say its unclear what caused Owczarek to lose control of his vehicle. An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
