A South Carolina man was flown to a Columbus hospital on Friday following a three-vehicle crash on U.S. 62 in Licking County.
According to Licking County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Chad Carson, their agency was called to the intersection of U.S. 62 and Ohio 657 around 3:57 p.m. Friday for a crash.
Carson said Michael Brown, 65, of North Charleston, South Carolina, was driving a four-door sedan headed southbound on Ohio 657 and failed to yield to a stop sign. He said Ryan Nickles, 44, of Brewster, was driving a one-ton Dodge dually pulling a gooseneck trailer eastbound on U.S 62, left the right side of the road and overturned when the vehicle returned to the road, which blocked U.S. 62.
Carson said Brown’s vehicle was then struck by a pickup truck, driven by Jonathan McCourt, 20, of Pataskala, who was driving westbound on U.S. 62.
According to the lieutenant, Brown was flown to Grant Medical Center, where he was treated and released. A passenger from Brown’s vehicle was treated at the scene for minor injuries. No other injuries were reported in the crash.
Carson said U.S. 62 was shutdown until about 8:30 p.m. Friday as crews cleared the scene. Licking County Hazmat was called to the scene because the overturned vehicle was leaking chemicals, he added.
In addition to the LCSO and Licking County Hazmat, units from Homer and Utica Fire Departments responded to the scene.
