A former Ohio County Sheriff was injured in an accident on Saturday.
Shortly before 9am on Saturday, June 11, former Ohio County Sheriff Eldon Fancher was traveling into Rising Sun on his tractor after doing some work south of the city. Fancher’s tractor was rear ended by a vehicle, causing the tractor to go airborne and land on its top.
91 year old Robert Brown of Cincinnati was driving the vehicle, and was uninjured in the crash. Fancher, however, was taken to UC Hospital in Cincinnati and kept overnight for observation and released.
Deputies have not said why Brown hit the tractor. No other injuries were reported.
The Ohio County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by Ohio County Rescue and the Rising Sun Fire Department.
