WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) -

Police released the name of the victim killed in an early Wednesday morning single-vehicle West Chester crash.

Timothy Haunert, 42, was the passenger in a silver 2006 Infinity being driven by 25-year-old Adam Summers at around 1:30 a.m. on U.S. 42, police said.

Summers was driving northbound when his vehicle went airborne, hit a metal pole and split in half shortly after 1:30 a.m. near Cox Road, according to police.

The passenger was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Summers was transported to West Chester Hospital. His condition was not made available.

AirCare was initially called to respond to the accident and then disregarded.

Speed and alcohol appear to be factors in the crash, police said. 

The road was shut down for more than five hours while authorities investigated.

Crews towed the mangled remains of the vehicle away just before 7 a.m. and reopened the road by 7:15 a.m.

The crash remains under investigation.
