Keith McClintock, 56, of Dayton, was pronounced dead on scene, Root said.

McClintock was driving a 2016 Hyundai Veloster southbound in the northbound lanes of SR-4.

A 2006 Cadillac Escalade and a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado were both traveling north on SR-4 at the time of the crash, Root said.

The Cadillac saw the Hyundai in its lane of travel and tried to swerve out of the way.

After sideswiping the Cadillac, the Hyundai continued driving the wrong way, Root said.

The Hyundai then hit the Chevrolet head-on. A 64-year-old man from Trotwood was driving the Chevrolet.
