One man is dead after an early morning crash on State Route 188 near High Point Road.

The Lancaster Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol says Robert Banfill of Thurston drove off the right side of the road, struck a guardrail and overturned. Troopers say Banfill was not wearing his seatbelt and was pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers are still investigating the cause of the accident.

Thorn Township EMS and the Perry County Coroner both responded to the scene.
