A Cecil, Ohio, man was critically hurt early today in a one-vehicle accident near Sherwood, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
Jason Edds, 34, initially was taken to Defiance Regional Medical Center and then was flown to the University of Toledo Medical Center, the highway patrol said in a statement.
Police said Edds was driving south on Platter Creek Road, south of Jericho Road, about 12:05 a.m. when the vehicle traveled off the left side of the road and struck several trees. He was removed from the vehicle using the Jaws of Life, police said.
Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation, police said.
The Defiance County Sheriff's Office, the Delaware Township Fire Department and the Delaware Township EMS assisted at the scene.
