A Bethany man was injured in a rollover accident early last evening near his hometown.
30-year-old Jarod Hillyard was taken by ambulance to the Harrison County Community Hospital in Bethany. The highway patrol listed his injuries as moderate. He was wearing a seat belt.
The patrol noted the pickup was eastbound on Route F when it traveled off the south side of the road. Hillyard apparently over-corrected with the truck returning to the road where it skidded counter clockwise across Route F and traveled off the north side, went down an embankment, and overturned onto its top.
The accident happened about 5:30 Wednesday evening, approximately two miles to the northwest of Bethany.
The pickup was demolished.
Harrison county sheriff’s department assisted the highway patrol at the scene of the accident.
