A rollover accident outside of Nebo sent three people to the hospital via helicopters. At approximately 10:52 yesterday morning, the Pike County Sheriff’s office responded to a rollover vehicle crash on County Highway 7, about 4 miles north of Nebo.

A vehicle driven by Joseph Yasenko was traveling northbound on County Highway Seven. As the vehicle approached a curve, it traveled off the east side of the roadway, striking a guardrail and rolled over onto its top. Upon arrival of a Pike County Sheriff’s Deputy, Yasenko and two passengers were trapped in the vehicle. The Spring Creek Fire Department along with the Pleasant Hill Fire Department, the Pittsfield Fire Department and Pike County EMS were able to free the driver and passengers from the vehicle.

All three occupants were transported from the scene to medical facilities via helicopters.
