CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A 53-year-old Arizona man was killed in a crash in Cincinnati overnight, according to the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office.

Steven Morris of Phoenix was pronounced dead at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center shortly after he arrived late Monday, coroner’s officials confirmed.

The crash was reported on Highland Drive between Ridge and Lester roads in Pleasant Ridge just after 10 p.m. Monday, according to Cincinnati police.

Morris’ 2020 Mercedes CLA 250 was going east on Highland Drive when it went off the road and hit a concrete bridge abutment, Cincinnati police explained. Morris was wearing a seatbelt.

There were no passengers in the vehicle, and it was the only one involved in the crash, Lt. Tim Lanter said.

The Cincinnati Police Traffic Unit is continuing to investigate but said speed is not believed to be a factor in the crash.
