Man flown to hospital following serious crash

UNION TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A man was flown to the hospital Monday night after a serious crash in Warren County.

It happened just before 11 p.m. on U.S. 42 near milepost 7 in Union Township.

Police say Jeffrey Chambers, 24, of Oregonia was headed northbound when he traveled left of center as he exited a curve in the roadway. Chambers over-corrected, lost control, traveled off the right side of the road, struck a large pole and a wooden fence and came to rest in a ditch.

Chambers was trapped inside the vehicle until he was extricated, then flown to Miami Valley Hospital. Police say his injuries are serious, but not life-threatening.

Ohio State Highway Patrol officers say speed and alcohol were contributing factors. The crash remains under investigation.
