Staff Writer

The Shelby County Sheriff's Office is investigating a single-vehicle crash, which occurred on Sunday.
According to a news release from the sheriff's office, at approximately 3:50 a.m. Sunday, the sheriff's office received a report of a single-vehicle crash in the 11000 block of Hardin Wapak Road reporting the occupants were allegedly ejected from the vehicle.
A silver, 2003 Chevy Silverado was traveling south on Hardin Wapak Road approaching a sharp curve to the left. The driver failed to negotiate the curve and went off the right side of the roadway. The vehicle went sideways into a field, where it overturned multiple times.
There were three occupants in the vehicle: William M. Littlefield, 53, David P. Mangen, 17, and Ronald Todd, 17. Currently, it is not clear who was driving. Littlefield and Todd were ejected from the vehicle, and Mangen was able to get out of the vehicle before first responders arrived.
Deputies with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office and Fort Loramie Fire and Rescue responded to the scene. Careflight was initially called but was rerouted to Wilson Health. Fort Loramie Rescue transported Mangen to Wilson Health with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries. Fort Loramie Rescue transported Littlefield and Todd to Wilson Health and then by separate helicopters to Miami Valley Hospital, with their conditions not known.
According to preliminary investigation, it appeared none of the occupants were wearing seat belts, and alcohol was found at the scene and allegedly is a possible contributing factor in the crash.
