Felicia Graffius of Mt. Zion, owner of the vehicle and reportedly the driver, and Chris Johnson of Grantsville were taken to Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center shortly after the 5:45 p.m. accident. No report on their condition was available.

The vehicle landed on its top along the highway in the Leatherbark area, east of Arnoldsburg. Deputy Ron Bandy, who investigated the accident, said the driver reported being crowded by another vehicle.
