A man is dead after a fatal car accident in Bowling Green Township of Licking County.

At around 7:11 a.m. on Sunday, the Granville Post of the Highway Patrol investigated a fatal crash.

Lieutenant Darrin Blosser says a 1995 Saturn SC, driven by Paul Bowser, 43, of Glenford, Ohio, was driving west bound on Laurel Hill Road when the vehicle went off the south side of the roadway and struck a tree.

Bowser was the only person in the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene by the National Trails Fire Department. Lt. Blosser says Bowser was not wearing a seatbelt and alcohol use was suspected in the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.
