 One person is dead after a crash early Sunday morning in Muskingum County.

The Zanesville Post of the State Highway Patrol says it happened near milepost 3 on SR 60 around 3:00 a.m. 

Troopers say the driver, 60-year-old  Ricky Kirby of Malta and 63-year-old John Jones of Zanesville were heading south on SR 60 when their car went off the side of the road, hit a guardrail, and then overturned ejecting Kirby and killing him.

Jones was taken to Genesis Good Samaritan Hospital with minor injuries.

It’s unknown if seat belts were in use by Jones or Kirby.

The crash remains under investigation.
