(Jackson Township, Clermont County, OH)-- A 40-year-old Sardinia man was seriously hurt late Sunday night in an accident on State Route 131 west of Bucktown Rd.

State troopers said that Joseph Porter was driving westbound in a van when he went off the right side of the road and hit a ditch.  The van then hit a culvert and driveway and overturned.  The van then came to rest upright in the yard. 

Porter was the only one inside the van. He was transported to UC Medical Center by Air Care.  

Troopers believed alcohol played a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
