VINTON COUNTY — A serious crash occurred in Swan Township last week and troopers from the Jackson Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol are investigating what caused it.

According to a press release from the post, troopers responded to the two- vehicle crash on State Route 93 at the intersection of State Route 56 in the afternoon hours on June 7.
