COSHOCTON – On Aug. 15 at approximately 3:56 p.m. the Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call in reference to a motor vehicle accident near the address of 45772 County Road 405.  Upon arrival of emergency personnel it was found that a Toyota truck had gone off the left side of the road, over an embankment, overturned, and struck a tree.  The driver, Roy C. King, a 73 year old male from Doylestown, Ohio, was ejected from the vehicle due to not wearing his seat belt and was pinned beneath the truck.

A nearby resident was able to extricate the driver and started CPR. The driver sustained severe injuries as a result of the accident and was pronounced deceased at the scene by Coshocton County Coroner Dr. Robert Gwinn.

Assisting at the scene was Coshocton County EMS, Prince’s Wrecker Service, and the Walhonding Valley Fire Department. This accident remains under investigation at this time.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind everyone of the importance of always wearing your seat belt and making sure all occupants of a vehicle are properly belted.
