A 53-year-old man was killed Monday evening after a car he was riding in struck a utility pole in Scioto County.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol responded to a single vehicle crash on Gallia Pike just before 7 p.m.
Troopers said a 38-year-old woman was driving a maroon 2001 Ford Explorer southbound on Gallia Pike when she drove off the west side of the road and traveled down an embankment, struck a utility pole and overturned.
The woman was taken to Ohio Medical Center and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Trooper said a 53-year-old man Timothy Stapleton, of Ironton, Ohio, was not wearing a seatbelt, and was partially ejected and trapped underneath the vehicle.
He was taken airlifted to St. Mary's Hospital where he later died from his injuries.
Authorities believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.
This crash remains under investigation.
