CAMDEN, Ohio (WDTN) – Two teens helping replace a roof were injured in Preble County Monday morning.

They were removing and preparing the roof at a house on Aukerman Creek Road in Camden when a standard shift dump truck, accidentally left in reverse gear, rolled backwards and hit the two.

One of the teens, Henry Durham, suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

The other, Henry’s cousin, 15-year-old Houston Durham, was severely injured.
Houston’s father, John, called 9-1-1. “We got him out, his arm is all messed up,” said the elder Durham to the dispatch operator. “He’s having trouble breathing,” the worried father said of his son.

Houston was taken by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton.

So far, no word on his condition.
