CINCINNATI, Ohio (FOX19) - Spring Grove was completely shut down late Monday between William P Dooley Bypass and Crawford Avenue after a fatal single-car crash.
Crews responded to the scene at Dane and Spring Grove around 10:30 p.m. attempting to figure out if there were any people trapped inside a car that went into Mill Creek.
Police said Jonathan Seay, 41, was driving northbound on Spring Grove when he lost control of the vehicle and drove off the right side of the roadway. He went through two fences and came to rest upside down in Mill Creek.
Officials said the vehicle was in the water at the bottom of a more-than 30 ft. retaining wall.
“It was a good 30 feet to actually get into the vehicle itself,” Chief Mark Sanders said.
Seay was critically injured and succumbed to his injuries at the scene.
Excessive speed appears to be a factor in the crash, police said. Impairment is unknown at this time.
Seay was not wearing his seatbelt.
The Traffic Unit is continuing the investigation and any witnesses are asked to call 513-352-2514.
