A man was flown to a hospital by a medical helicopter after crashing his car a little north of Findlay.

The crash happened on Township Road 142 near Township Road 108 a little after 5 p.m. on Thursday.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office says Seth Barker, 28, of Van Buren, was northbound on Township Road 142 when he drove his car off the road and it overturned.

Seth was ejected from the car and it came to rest in a field and then caught on fire.
