Pregnant Woman Involved In Athens County Crash


One person was flown to the hospital after a crash Saturday night in Athens County.

It happened just after 11:00 p.m. on State Route 13.

Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers say 23-year-old Robert L. Hooper of Corning drove off the side of the road and hit a guardrail.

The cab of his pickup truck detached and flipped onto its top.

Troopers say a car driven by 21-year-old Edward R. Cooper of Athens crashed into the flipped cab.

A medical helicopter flew Hooper to a hospital.  His condition is unknown.

Cooper had a pregnant passenger in his car, 19-year-old Paige K. McDonald of Nelsonville.  Neither was injured, but medics took McDonald to the hospital as a precaution due to her pregnancy.

The roadway was shut down for two hours as authorities investigated the crash scene.
