A 23-year-old Geauga County man is dead after a crash in Munson Township Wednesday evening.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, 23-year-old Brandon Molter of Newbury was driving west on Wilson Mills Road when he went left of center. Molter then overcorrected, investigators say, went off the right side of the road and hit a ditch. 

The 2008 Chevrolet Equinox then overturned. Molter was ejected. He was taken to University Hospital's Case Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead. 

Officials say Molter was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. Alcohol is a suspected factor.
