SPRINGFIELD TWP, OH (FOX19) - One person died when a sport utility vehicle plunged off an overpass on eastbound Ronald Reagan Cross County Highway overnight.

The eastbound lanes were shut down for just over three hours before reopening by 5:15 a.m. Monday.

Rescue crews responded just before 2 a.m. after the Infinity SUV was knocked off the highway at the intersection of Caldwell  Drive between I-75 and Galbraith Road. 

The driver of the SUV, identified by police as Jaytwan Smith, 33, was pronounced dead at the scene.

His passenger was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center with unknown injuries. Their name has not been released.

Springfield Township police are investigating. A cause was not immediately available, and authorities did not say if speed, alcohol or drugs appear to be factors.
