Man injured after pickup veers off I-75, hits trees


BOWLING GREEN -- A Findlay man was injured today when his pickup truck went off I-75 and struck two trees.

Christopher Harless, 22, was flown by air ambulance to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center after rescue workers with the Central Joint Fire District extricated him from his vehicle using the Jaws of Life. A hospital spokesman said he was listed in fair condition.

According to the Ohio Highway Patrol, Mr. Harless was southbound on I-75 near Bowling Green about 8:25 a.m. when his pickup traveled off the right side of the road and struck two trees along the right-of-way fence.

The interstate was closed for approximately 45 minutes after the crash, which remains under investigation.
