The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a Sunday night accident.

Troopers say 38-year-old Russel Pride was driving his buick around 54-95 Pinkerton Road when he lost control of the vehicle, crashing into a ditch. Newtown Township also responded to the scene.

"No they seem fine. It was minor injuries," explained Newton Township Firefighter Bryce Cooper. "The driver had a couple of scraps and bruises, but fine pretty much."

Pride and his 15-year-old passenger were taken to the hospital as a precaution. The State Patrol says citations could be pending.
