CIRCLEVILLE— One person has died following a single-vehicle crash north of Circleville on Friday night.
Just after 8 p.m., the crash, located in the rear of the Pickaway Craft Mall in the 2100 block of North Court Street, was reported to 911 dispatch. First responders arrived at the scene to find one vehicle that had hit a storage structure. The vehicle and the storage unit were both on fire.
The car had turned off North Court Street, proceeded down the parking lot and then struck a parked storage trailer before continuing another couple hundred feet before striking the rear of the building. From the road to where the car stopped is over 300 feet.
According to Pickaway Township Fire Chief Bryan Brown, the fire burned for about an hour before it was extinguished. Firefighters had to cut a hole in the western side of the building to aid in putting the fire out.
As of Monday, the crash was still under investigation and the name of the victim has not been released.
