WEST JEFFERSON, Ohio (WCMH) — I-70 East at SR 29 is back open following a fatal crash that happened around 6 Sunday morning.
One person died in the crash, which involved two vehicles, according to OSHP. Troopers say a Plain City man was driving a 2014 Ram truck along I-70 East when it collided with the second vehicle, a 2007 Chrysler that was traveling westbound.
Both vehicles then caught fire, according to troopers.
OSHP says the driver of the Chrysler was pronounced dead at the scene, while the driver of the Ram truck was transported to The Ohio State University Hospital for treatment.
Officials are still working to identify the driver of the Chrysler and notify family.
OSHP diverted traffic to State Route 40 from I-70 East for several hours.
