VERSAILLES — The Darke County Sheriff’s Office is continuing an investigation of a single-vehicle accident Sunday morning that sent the driver to the hospital.

On March 5 at 12:44 a.m. Darke County Sheriff Deputies along with Versailles Rescue, Versailles Fire Department and Miami Valley CareFlight responded to an injury accident in the 11400 block of State Route 47.

The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado failed to negotiate a curve and went off the right side of the road. The truck struck a sign and several trees before it came to rest.

The driver was transported to Miami Valley Hospital by CareFlight where he was listed in serious condition. The name of the driver was not released because he was not positively identified at this time of the accident.

Alcohol is suspected to be a factor in this accident. The accident remains under investigation.
