The initial investigation showed the Buick Century he was driving was southbound when Watts lost control as he crossed over Mason Road. The vehicle went off the right side of the road and traveled about 350 feet before it rolled over.

The juvenile has not been identified by name and his condition is unknown.

A 22-year-old from Minster and a 13-year-old from Sidney were identified as the occupants of a vehicle that was involved in a rollover crash Wednesday morning. The “Jaws of Life,” were used to extricate the occupants according to the Shelby County Sheriff's Office. We are working to learn more about the conditions of the occupants and will update you with the latest information. 

UPDATE @ 8:22 a.m.

A man and a juvenile male were both injured in a single-vehicle rollover crash this morning in the 8700 block of Hardin-Wapakoneta Road, northwest of Sidney.

Both occupants were pinned in the wrecked vehicle until firefighters arrived on scene and extricated them.

One was taken by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital and the other was taken by life squad to Wilson Memorial Hospital in Sidney.

Speed appears to be a factor when the vehicle went out of control and off the roadway.
