GREEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Authorities say a 33-year-old man was killed in an accident Friday evening in Green Township.

It happened on Beatty Road, just west of Regan Road, around 5 p.m.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Wesley Mercer, of New Vienna, was headed eastbound on Beatty Road in a Chevrolet Silverado.

Troopers say Mercer drove off the left side of the roadway, overcorrected and then drove off the right side of the road. As a result, the pickup truck overturned and Mercer was thrown from the vehicle.

He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Clinton County Coroner's Office.

Authorities say Mercer was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. Alcohol did not appear to be a factor.

The accident remains under investigation by the Wilmington Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
