XENIA TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) –The victim in a fatal crash in Greene County has been identified.

It happened around 6:00 a.m. Monday on U.S. 68 just north of S.R. 235 in Xenia Township.

the Ohio State Highway Patrol says Glatfelter was driving south on 68 in a Dodge pick-up truck when the vehicle drifted off the left side of the road. The truck swerved back across 68, running off the right side of the road and through a fence.
