A 41-year-old man and his dog are dead after a crash in Lorain County.
The crash happened around 9:30 p.m Wednesday in Pittsfield Township.
Kip McGraw, 41 of Sullivan, was driving westbound on Kipton Nickle-Plate Road when he failed to make a sharp curve to the right, Ohio State Patrol officials say.
The car went straight off the west side of the road, hit a road sign, a ditch and a tree before overturning.
McGraw, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle.
He was pronounced dead at the scene. A dog that was riding in the car was also killed.
Authorities say speed and alcohol both appear to be factors. It is unknown at this time if drug use was a factor.
The crash remains under investigation. This marks the first fatal crash in Lorain County for 2016.
