MOUNT VERNON — A Florida woman is in serious but stable condition this morning at The Ohio State University Medical Center with injuries sustained from a crash Monday night.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol said Christin Thompson, 27, Palm Bay, Fla., lost control of her car on U.S. 36 on a curve a quarter mile east of Ohio 308.
She was driving east at about 10:45 p.m. when her 2011 Chevrolet Aveo went left of center on the curve. The car left the road and slammed into a tree on its passenger side and then spun half way around coming to rest on the other side of the tree.
She was taken to Knox Community Hospital by the College Township Fire Department squad and then flown by air ambulance to Columbus. Seatbelt and alcohol usage are unknown at this time.
The crash remains under investigation. A Knox County Sheriff’s deputy aided the fire department in traffic control. Coshocton Road was closed while the crash was investigated.
