MONTGOMERY, OH (FOX19) - Eastbound Ronald Reagan Cross County Highway is open again at Montgomery Road after a rollover crash closed it most of the morning.

A medical helicopter responded to an accident with a male driver trapped inside a vehicle on its top about 5:15 a.m., according to Hamilton County dispatchers.

Rescue crews spotted the vehicle about 50 feet off the eastbound lanes of the highway in brush, they confirm.

The driver was extricated and flown to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

His name, age and condition was not immediately available.

Crews searched the woods to make sure there are no other victims.

Earlier this morning, the driver's mother called 911, according to a recording of the call.

She said he left their home in White Oak in the middle of the night. He has expressed suicidal thoughts and has been depressed, she told a dispatcher.

A tracking device inside her son's green, 1998 Toyota Avalon showed the vehicle was stopped where the highway ends just before Montgomery Road, she said.

It also indicated the vehicle was going 112 mph, she told the dispatcher.

The mother said she feared her son's vehicle had crashed, and he was not picking up his phone.

FOX19 NOW has a crew at the scene and will continue to update this story throughout the morning.
