A one-car crash injured a Fostoria man near West Independence Monday afternoon. The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office reports the crash happened on U.S. 224, just east of County Road 23 around 12:10 p.m.

63-year-old Craig Ford was driving a Jeep east on the highway when he approached a road closed sign at the intersection of Road 23. Ford drove around the sign, overcorrected, and went into a ditch. The Jeep rolled over once and ended up on its wheels.

Hanco Ambulance took Ford to Blanchard Valley Hospital for treatment of his injuries. A 6-year-old in the vehicle wasn’t hurt. Deputies cited Ford for operating without reasonable control.
