SPRINGFIELD TWP., Ohio (WDTN) — The Ohio State Highway Patrol identified the man who died as the result of a two vehicle crash on State Route 41 and Titus Road in Clark County Thursday afternoon.
John Dooley, 45, of Springfield, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
OSHP say that Dooley was driving north on SR-41 around 3 p.m. when a 27-year-old man made a right turn into a private drive. Dooley hit the passenger side door of the man’s vehicle and then drove into a utility pole.
Dooley was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. The other driver, and his 2-year-old passenger, were not injured in the incident.
“Wearing a seatbelt and properly using child restraints is the easiest and most effective safety device we have in vehicles today. Seatbelts save lives,” said Lt. Hilderbrandt of the OSHP.
The crash remains under investigation.
