CLARK COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – A man was killed in a two-vehicle Clark County crash Sunday.

Ohio State Highway Patrol said the crash was reported at 3:30 a.m. on the 10800 block of Schiller Road near Lake Road in Medway. When crews arrived, they found a pickup truck submerged in a creek.

OSHP said volunteers from Bethel Township EMS entered the water but were not able to reach the driver, Robert Wood, 41, of Medway, who was pinned under the overturned truck. Wood died in the crash.

The second vehicle in the crash struck a utility pole which brought lines down across the roadway. The driver of that vehicle was not injured.

Schiller Road was closed after the crash while troopers waited for AT&T to remove the damaged lines.
