LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

The Ohio State Patrol is investigating a crash that occurred around 3:30 a.m. Sunday that left one dead and another in serious condition.

Investigators say that the driver of a 2001 Ford pick up truck was headed westbound on Green Road, just west of SR 247 in Liberty Township, but drove off the right side of the roadway. The driver over-corrected and drove off the left side of the roadway and hit a tree. The truck then flipped, expelling one of the passengers. It then came to rest right side up but was still running so it crossed the roadway again and ended up in a ditch on the other side of the road.

Marshal Banks, 22 of Hillsboro Ohio was pronounced dead at the scene. Logan Walker, also 22 of Hillsboro is listed in serious condition at Highland District Hospital. Investigators are unsure of who was driving at this point, but do suspect alcohol and speed to be factors in the crash.
