QUEENSGATE, OH (FOX19) - One driver was killed in a Queensgate car accident Wednesday morning.

The accident happened around 9 a.m. at Gest and Evans Streets.

According to Officer Brian Norris, the vehicle, driven by 37-year-old Derrick Davidson, was traveling eastbound when it went left of center and struck a dump truck. The vehicle then went up a guard wire about 15 to 20 feet, struck a utility pole and flipped a few times.

Police said Davidson was ejected from the vehicle. He was not wearing his seatbelt.

He was transported to University Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

The driver and passenger in the dump truck were not injured.

Police said excessive speed and impairment appear to be factors in the crash.
