A short time after 8 a.m., Adam Fekkos, 21, of Goshen was traveling was on Interstate 275 at the 50.9 mile marker. He lost control of his vehicle, went off the right side of the road, struck a tree and retaining wall, and overturned.

Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be  a factor in the crash but Fekkos was not wearing a seat belt.

The interstate was shut down momentarily, so that Aircare could land the helicopter.

The crash is still under investigation.
