HAMILTON, Ohio (WXIX) - A 33-year-old driver is dead in a single-vehicle crash in Butler County early Wednesday, a Hamilton police spokesman tells FOX19 NOW.

The Butler County Coroner’s Office was called to the scene on Tylersville Road at Mourning Dove Lane, just west of Ohio Bypass 4, in Hamilton just before 3 a.m., according to dispatchers.

An SUV struck and downed a utility pole, and wires fell on the vehicle about 2 a.m., according to dispatchers.

Officer Richard Burkhardt said the driver was the only person in the SUV, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Tylersville Road was shut down all morning while Duke Energy crews put up a new utility pole.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

The coroner’s office will release the driver’s name once his family has been notified, according to Officer Burkhardt.
