(Friday, September 14th) Wayne Township, Ohio – State Highway Patrol Troopers are investigating a one-vehicle accident that resulted in a death.

The Jefferson County crash occurred on US 22 on Wednesday.

Steubenville Post Lt. Joe Fetty explains when units arrived on the scene, they located a van about 100 yards down a hill.

“The vehicle was eastbound and drifted off the south side and just barely hit the guardrail, and went down the embankment. It was actually out of sight from the traffic passing by.”

50-year-old Anthony Goudy, of Pennsylvania, was pronounced dead.

He notes an investigation is continuing on how the crash occurred since the roadway straightens; however, the roadway is experiencing some construction.

Goudy was the sole occupant of the vehicle and had not been wearing a seatbelt.
