Driver in Stable Condition After Being Trapped Under Truck Following Speed Related Crash

On January 24, 2013 at approximately 8:40 A.M., Darke County Deputies along with Union City Fire and Rescue and CareFlight were dispatched to the area of Beamsville-Union City Road and Hillgrove-Ft. Recovery Road on a report of a one vehicle injury crash with ejection.

Preliminary investigation revealed a blue 1994 Ford Ranger, driven by 30 year old, John V. Neargarder of Union City, Ohio was traveling east on Beamsville-Union City Road and passed another vehicle in the same direction at a high rate of speed. The Ford Ranger then traveled off the right side of the road, causing the driver to overcorrect, and then travel off the left side of the road, striking several trees and a fence, which caused the vehicle to rollover, while partially ejecting the driver, who was trapped with the vehicle on top of him.

John Neargarder was removed from the vehicle by Union City Fire and Rescue after they inflated an airbag, lifting the vehicle off of him. Mr. Neargarder was airlifted by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

This accident remains under investigation by the Darke County Sheriff's Office.
