Ohioan found dead near site of crash 4 days prior

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police say an Ohio man believed to have fled after a car crash has been found dead nearby four days later.

Authorities say a relative of 22-year-old Seon K. Wright called police Saturday morning to say that his body had been discovered on Columbus' east side near Interstate 270.

Police say they believe Wright was involved in a car crash on Tuesday in the same area. Police reports indicate that Wright fled the scene on foot and evaded searches by a helicopter and police dogs.

Wright's cause of death hasn't yet been determined.
