The Franklin County Sheriff’s Department responded to an accident on S.R. 1 south of Goblers Knob Road around 9:30 p.m. on Halloween night.

William Ringle, 60, of Liberty was traveling northbound in his 2009 Hyundai Accent when police say he lost control down a grade and into an eastward curve.

The vehicle struck a guardrail, which caused a large indention. The vehicle continued to strike the guardrail and rotate before finally coming to a stop.

Ringle and his wife, Gerry Ringle were entrapped and sustained head trauma and injuries to their necks. They were transported to Harrison’s PAC Center.

William Ringle was later transferred to University Hospital in Cincinnati. He died from the injuries sustained in the accident.

Police say neither occupant was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.
