One person was killed in a crash yesterday morning on State Route 7 in Columbiana County.

According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, 23 year old Hudson Thompson of Negley, Ohio was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials say the Ford F-350 was traveling north on Route 7 and went off the roadway, striking a mailbox and a sign before going in a ditch, hitting a tree and overturning.

Police say Thompson was ejected from the vehicle, although he was wearing a seat belt. According to State Patrol, alcohol and speed both appear to be factors in the crash.
