Driver ejected, killed in Preble County crash

EATON — A man was ejected from an SUV and killed in a three-vehicle crash on U.S. Route 127 in Preble County Tuesday, according to state troopers.

An SUV and a car were traveling north on U.S. Route 127 near the Preble County Landfill when the driver of the SUV lost control of their vehicle and went off the right side of the road, investigators said. The driver over-corrected and went left of center, crashing into a semi hauling grain traveling south.

The crash collected the car that was traveling behind the SUV, troopers said.

The driver of the SUV, only identified as a man, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers said he was not wearing a seat belt.

The drivers of the semi and car were not injured.
