FINDLAY — The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office investigated a one-vehicle injury crash at 3:38 p.m. Sunday.

According to officials, the office received a call reporting the crash on state Route 698 just south of county Road 26 in Eagle Township. Michael Ricksecker, 49, of Jenera, was driving south on state Route 698 in a 2007 Ford sport utility vehicle when he lost control of the vehicle. His vehicle went left of center, off the left side of the roadway and struck a ditch. The vehicle rolled twice before coming to rest upright.

Ricksecker and two passengers in the vehicle, Mikaela Ricksecker, 14, and Amie Ricksecker, 17, were all taken to Blanchard Valley Hospital by Hanco EMS to be treated for possible injuries. The report did not indicate any injuries to a fourth passenger, Teresa Ricksecker, 46. Their conditions were unavailable late Sunday.
