Charges pending against driver in Clayton roll-over crash

August 10, 2018

Charges are pending against a man following a single-car crash Thursday evening in Clayton.

Authorities said the driver lost control of his truck on Glen Laurel Road, drove through a ditch and struck a drainage culvert.

The crash caused the truck to flip, pinning the driver inside, authorities said.

A nearby Johnson County deputy heard the crass and worked with another witness to attempt to pry open the doors of the truck to free the driver, but were unsuccessful.

Firefighters were able to extricate the man from the truck, and he was taken to an area hospital with unknown injuries.

Authorities did not say what charges the man would face.
