MEDINA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - The Medina Post of the Highway Patrol is currently investigating a one vehicle double fatal crash.

The crash occurred on West River Road at Crocker Road in Liverpool Township at 6:15PM on Thursday near the Lorain county line.

23-year-old Zachary M. Roberts was driving a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse on West River Road and drove off the right side of the roadway striking a road sign. He continued on striking a fence then a group of shrubs.

The vehicle then went airborne and struck a group of trees. The vehicle came to rest on its right side.

21-year-old Kurt D. Jacobs was the front seat passenger. Both occupants were pronounced dead at the scene by the Lorain County Coroner.

Seat belts were not in use; alcohol may have been a factor.
