Ohio man killed in accident believed driving drunk

WALNUT, Ohio (AP) — Authorities believe a man who died overnight in a single-vehicle crash south of Columbus was driving drunk.

The Pickaway County Sheriff's Office says 43-year-old Christopher Seyfang of Ashville was driving in Walnut when his car went off the right side of the road and down an embankment.

Seyfang's car then hit a culvert and a utility pole, causing the car to roll several times into a farm field and come to a rest upside-down.

Seyfang was pronounced dead at the scene.

The sheriff's office says he was wearing a seatbelt and that they believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

The accident remains under investigation.
