IMG_9300ATHENS TOWNSHIP – An an 18-wheeler truck from an unknown company ran off U.S. 22 on the edge of Athens Township approximately 12:30 p.m. Friday afternoon.

According to officials on site, an Ohio State Trooper was following the truck, which was driving erratically all the way from Industrial Park Road but never stopped for the flashing lights and siren.

There is speculation that the truck driver may have been suffering from a medical emergency but according to the Ohio State Patrol, they don’t even know the driver’s name as he had to be cut out of the truck then life-flighted to an area hospital.

Further details coming.
