SCOTT TOWNSHIP, Ohio — The Georgetown Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) is investigating a crash that left one person dead in Scott Township on Friday.

OSHP said Jeremy Cramton, 41, of Mount Orab, was heading north on US 68 near Stony Hollow Road around 4 p.m. when he attempted to pass another car. Cramton then struck a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado heading south in a head-on collision. Cramton's vehicle overturned and caught fire; he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators said the 2018 Silverado was pushed backwards by the impact, striking a 2008 Pontiac G6. The driver of the Pontiac was transported to Mount Orab Mercy for minor injuries.

Both the driver of the 2018 Silverado and a passenger were transported via helicopter to UC Medical Center for serious injuries, investigators said. Their condition is unknown.
