Brentley Montgomery, 19, was from Lawrence County. The Ross County Sheriff's Office says Montgomery was thrown from the truck in the accident.

The Ohio Highway Patrol says Montgomery was behind the wheel of the 2003 Kenworth tanker fire truck at the time of the crash. It happened Friday in the Harrison Township area of Ross County.

Montgomery was flown to a Columbus hospital.
