( Whitewater Twp ) - The Hamilton County Sheriff says a 19-year-old from Erlanger, Kentucky, is recovering from non-life-threatening injuries after a rollover crash on US 50 near Kilby Road on Tuesday just before 8am.
Christopher Deters told first responders that he fell asleep behind the wheel, drove left of center and off the left side of the road. He crashed into an embankment and his car stopped up against a tree.
Deters had to be extricated from the car, and he was flown to University Hospital.
US 50 was shut down for about 90 minutes. Investigators say alcohol and/or drugs do not appear to be factors in the crash. No word yet if Deters will face any charges.
