A Chillicothe man is dead as the result of a two-vehicle crash in Ross County.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Michael Rapp, 31, of Chillicothe, died at Adena Regional Medical after he was struck by a vehicle operated by Jamey Vincent, 42, of New Marshfield, OH, that had veered out of its lane along U.S. 50 in Liberty Township.
The Patrol says Rapp had been traveling westbound along Route 50, near milepost 32, shortly after 1:00 p.m. Saturday when Vincent's eastbound Dodge Dakota is said to have traveled left of center and collided with Rapp's 1994 Ford Ranger, sending it off the roadway and into a ditch.
A Patrol report says Mr. Vincent was not transported by EMS.
The State Patrol reminds motorists to be cautious during inclement road conditions and wear their safety belts.
