Food-truck driver escapes serious injuries after vehicle wrecks on State Route 93

A commercial-food truck driver avoided serious injuries when his vehicle ran off the road and turned onto its side early Wednesday morning, June 14, on State Route 93 approximately four miles south of Jackson.

The Jackson Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol reports the single-vehicle crash occurred at 6:45 a.m. on State Route 93, 1-½ miles south of Standpipe Road in Franklin Township and involved a northbound 2013 model Kenworth truck driven by Trent Coburn, 28, of Jackson.

Coburn's truck, which was hauling food products, drove off the right side of the roadway and struck a mailbox. The truck returned to the roadway, overturned on its right side, slid off the left side of the road, and finally struck a guardrail.

Coburn was wearing his safety belt and sustained only minor injuries. He was taken by Jackson County EMS to Holzer Medical Center-Jackson where he was treated and released. The Patrol reported that Coburn said he was distracted by an object that had fallen inside of his truck and looked away from the roadway just prior to the crash. The crash remains under investigation.

State Route 93 at the scene was reduced to one lane for approximately four hours while the dairy products from the wrecked truck were transferred to another vehicle. In addition to Jackson County EMS, the Jackson Police Department, the Jackson Fire Department, and the Ohio Department of Transportation all assisted at the scene.
