23-year-old taken by medical helicopter after UTV accident

| August 23, 2020

On Aug. 22, 2020 at 10:53 p.m. dispatch received a 911 call in reference to an (UTV) Utility Task Vehicle accident with injury in the 16000 block County Road 80 in Pike Township.

Upon deputy’s arrival, it was found that Lakkin D. Amspaugh, (23), of Muskingum County was driving a Polaris Razor South on County Road 80 when he lost control of the UTV. The UTV then overturned multiple times in the roadway before going off the left side of the roadway over a guardrail.  The UTV then came to a rest after going over an embankment.

Amspaugh was flown from the scene by medical helicopter to OSU Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, for the extent of his injuries. Speed is considered to be a factor of this crash.

Assisting deputies at the scene was the Walhonding Valley Fire District, Coshocton County EMS, MedFlight, and Prince’s Wrecker Service. This incident remains under investigation by the Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office.
