ATHENS, Ohio (AP) -- The State Highway Patrol has charged the driver in a one-vehicle crash in southeast Ohio and the man accused of buying alcohol for her.

The patrol says its investigation tracing the alcohol source was the first resulting in charges since the Ohio Investigative Unit and the patrol integrated operations.

Authorities say 19-year-old driver Shelby Vore of Glouster was charged with aggravated vehicular assault, driving under the influence and failure to control her vehicle. The patrol says 23-year-old Joshua Sutton of Glouster was charged with buying beer for a person under 21.

The patrol says Vore received minor injuries after driving off the road in Athens County on Wednesday and striking a tree, while a 22-year-old passenger was hospitalized.

A message was left for Vore. Sutton's number wasn't listed.
