A Morrow County man died as the result of a one-vehicle crash that happened on State Route 61.

Ohio State Highway Patrol said the crash happened just after 11 p.m. Sunday night.

Authorities say a 2015 Black Dodge Grand Caravan was traveling northbound when the vehicle left the roadway and struck a traffic sign, a culvert and then overturned.

The driver, 63-year-old Larry Claffey, was taken to the Morrow County Community Hospital where he died from his injuries.

The passenger, 60-year-old Kathy Claffey, was also taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

OSHP said both were wearing seatbelts and alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
