OSP: Alcohol suspected factor in fatal crash

MIAMI TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Alcohol is a suspected factor in a single-vehicle crash that killed a 51-year-old Northern Kentucky man late Tuesday, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Crews responded to a report of an auto crash on US 50 near Ohio 450 just after 9 p.m., troopers said in a prepared statement early Wednesday.

A 1994 Chevrolet S-10 was traveling westbound on US 50 when the vehicle failed to negotiate a curve, they said.

The vehicle ran off the right side of the road and hit a traffic sign, ditch, utility pole, and embankment.

The Clermont County Coroner's Office pronounced the driver dead at the scene. He was identified as Randell E. Marsh, 51, of Cold Springs, Kentucky.

Alcohol is suspected to be a factor in the crash, troopers said.

Marsh was wearing a seatbelt.

State troopers continue to investigate.
