EATON —

One person died following a crash in Eaton today.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol closed Monroe Central Road at the Interstate 70 overpass after the two-vehicle crash there around 8:20 a.m.

A female told authorities she was driving on Monroe Central Road on the Interstate 70 overpass when an oncoming car went left of center. She said she noticed the male driver’s head was down before the two cars collided head-on.

The male driver was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity has not been released, but authorities did say he was born in 1987.

A medical helicopter had been on standby but was canceled, according to scanner traffic.
