LEBANON, Ohio (WDTN) – An 83-year-old man is dead after the car he was driving collided head-on with another vehicle in Warren County late Monday night.

The crash happened at around 11:45 pm Monday when a white 2003 Chevrolet S-10, driven by Vestle Ridenour, of Morrow, was driving southbound in the northbound lanes of S.R. 48, just south of S.R. 123 and collided head-on with a silver 2006 Saturn Ion, driven by 19-year-old Seth Meintel, of Lebanon.
