MORROW, OH (FOX19) -

A 20-year-old man died in a single-vehicle crash on Ohio 22 west of Morrow-Cozaddale Road early Thursday, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Ryan Chandler Spears of Morrow was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after his eastbound 1999 Ford Mustang crashed into a utility pole, said Sgt. Bob Burd of the patrol's Lebanon post.

It appears Spears started to doze off, and his vehicle ran left of center. Spears overcorrected at the last minute and slammed his car sideways into the pole.

The crash remains under investigation. It's not clear if speed and/or impairment are factors. Troopers also are not sure where Spears was traveling to at the time.

Ohio 22 was shut down for about three hours.
