MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — One man is dead after his vehicle rear-ended another before hitting the curb and flipping, according to police.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said as 48-year-old Michael Henderson was speeding north on University Blvd., he rear-ended 82-year-old Barbara Wiegert. After hitting her vehicle, Henderson's car drifted left and hit a curb, which caused his vehicle to flip onto its top.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities said Wiegard was transported to Atrium Hospital with minor injuries.

Police do not know yet if drugs or alcohol played a part in the crash; it remains under investigation.
