Troopers with the Ohio State Highway Patrol in Steubenville are investigating a fatal, two vehicle crash that happened early Tuesday morning in Harrison County.
The crash occurred just before 7:00 a.m. on US 22 at County Road 13 in Green Township.
According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Donald Golob, 67, of Brooklyn, Ohio, has died as a result of the crash.
Police say Golob was driving a 2007 Western Star Semi-truck with a trailer when a vehicle driven by Joshua Winstanley, 19, of Reno, Ohio attempted to turn northbound onto County Road 13. Officials say the semi was unable to stop and attempted to pass Winstanley’s pick-up.
Golob’s semi then hit Winstanley’s vehicle and went off the left side of US 22, striking the guardrail.
The load of the semi broke free, striking the cab of the truck. Golob was pronounced dead at the scene. Winstanley was not injured.
The accident is still under investigation.
