SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP -- A 49-year-old man is in the hospital with serious injuries following a crash Thursday night in which the truck he was driving struck a pole.
The Canton Post of the Highway Patrol says Ronald Chapman was driving a 1996 Ford F-150 southbound on Myersville Road when he failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway near Krumroy Road. The vehicle then went left of center and off the left side of the road where it crashed into a pole around 8:02 p.m.
Chapman, who was the only person inside the vehicle, was taken to Akron City Hospital where authorities say he is listed in stable condition.
The crash remains under investigation.
