COSHOCTON – On Feb. 3, the Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office received multiple 911 calls in reference to an accident on US Route 36 near Airport Road. Upon arrival of emergency personnel, it was found that a vehicle operated by 32-year-old Christopher Konalczyk of Coshocton was in a drainage ditch on the north side of US Route 36 and had heavy rear-end damage. Another vehicle operated by 71-year-old James Roman of Worthington, Ohio was found on the far side of the ditch and into a fence.
