BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - A 21-year-old driver is dead in an early morning crash in Morgan Township, according to the Butler County Sheriff’s Office.

Crews responded to a report of a vehicle on its top with a person trapped inside in the 3800 block of California Road at about 6:30 a.m.

Sheriff’s officials say it appears a 2001 silver Honda traveling south on California went off the road, struck a drainage pipe, and flipped over into a creek.

The driver, a male who was alone in the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene.

His name is being withheld pending notification of the family.

California Road remains shut down north of Alert New London Road while the sheriff’s office continues to investigate.
