SUMMIT COUNTY, Ohio (WOIO) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a deadly two-car crash that unfolded on Canton Road near Rhoadesdale Avenue in Springfield Township on Monday afternoon.

The crash occurred when a Chevrolet Silverado, driven by a 21-year-old man, drifted left of center and slammed head-on into a Hyundai Tucson.

The Hyundai was being driven by an 87-year-old man, who was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital shortly after the collision.

Both men were wearing seat belts, and alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the fatal wreck.
