The Lebanon man driving the truck that crashed head-on into an ambulance earlier this month, sending himself and three people to the hospital for treatment, pleaded guilty and paid $150 in fines in court costs in Warren County Court, according to court records.
Judge Gary Loxley sentenced Jesse C. Jones, 21, of Lebanon, after he pleaded guilty to “lanes of travel” during his arraignment last Thursday in the court in Lebanon.
On Feb. 9, Jones, two ambulance technicians and a woman being transported to a hospital after she suffered a stroke, were treated after the three-vehicle crash on Ohio 122 outside Red Lion in Clearcreek Twp., Warren County.
Jones and the ambulance techs were treated and released.
Marjorie Bottorff, 52, the person being transported at the time of the crash, was in good condition on Monday at Miami Valley Hospital.
The lanes of travel charge was based on the fact that investigation showed Jones’ truck went left of center and side-swiped another car stopped for the oncoming ambulance before crashing head-on into the ambulance.
No “aggravating circumstances” supporting other charges were found and no other charges were filed.
Jones was scheduled for a pretrial this morning, but the case was closed after the plea and sentence last week, according to on-line court records.
