PERRY TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WPTA) - Ohio police say they are looking into a crash Friday morning that killed a 20-year-old man.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Lima Post says the crash happened around 7:34. They say Walker A. Maag, 20, was traveling northbound on I-75 when he lost control of his truck while crossing the State Route 65 overpass that was icy at the time.

The truck went off the right side of the road through a guardrail and flipped over, ejecting Maag from the truck before stopping on Yoder Road. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol reminds motorists to always buckle up and use caution during icy road conditions.
