CLINTON COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

The Ohio State Highway Patrol are investigating a one vehicle fatal crash that left one dead this afternoon.

The Wilmington Patrol Post responded to the crash on State Route 73 just west of Milepost 21 in Clinton County.

Kyle Pitzer, 24, of Lynchburg, Ohio was traveling west in a 2005 Hyundai Sonata. Pitzer drove off the right side of the roadway just prior to negotiating a left hand curve.

Pitzer's car struck a concrete culvert and a tree, the vehicle overturned onto its roof and caught fire. 

Clinton County Coroner's office pronounced Pitzer dead at the scene.

OHSP say seatbelt usage is unknown and alcohol appears to not be a factor in the crash.

The crash still remains under investigation

Anyone that was a witness to the crash is asked to call the OHSP Wilmington Post at (937) 382-2551.
