Updated: Driver crashes on Route 33

A driver crashed on Route 33 near State Route 347 Friday afternoon around four o'clock.

The Marysville Post of the State Highway Patrol responded to the one-vehicle accident.

Eric Pferman, 45, of Bellefontaine, was driving a 2003 Honda Odyssey eastbound when he lost control on the wet roads, then went off the right side of 33 into a ditch.

Perry Township EMS responded, but no one was transported.

The driver left the scene, but later returned.

Pferman stated the vehicle had been driven by his girlfriend, Charlotte Johnson of Bellefontaine.

He said she was driving the vehicle because he had a warrant out for his arrest.

He actually was driving the minivan when the accident occurred.

Pferman was evaluated at a hospital, later taken into custody by the patrol, then exchanged to the Union County Sheriff's Office.

Pferman was charged with obstructing official business.

Johnson was located at work in Bellefontaine Friday evening.

Johnson said she had been the driver.

She was also charged with obstructing official business.

Troopers continue their investigation.
