NEWBURY TOWNSHIP -- Authorities are investigating a crash that left one man dead in Geauga County Monday evening.
It happened on Pekin Road east of Chagrin Woods Drive. The Ohio State Highway Patrol says a 2006 Pontiac G6 driven by 31-year-old Darran Boyd traveled off the right side of the road. Boyd reportedly overcorrected the car, veering left of center before striking a 2015 GMC Savana head-on.
Boyd's car rotated off the left side of the roadway while the GMC, driven by a 58-year-old Newbury man, ended up in a ditch.
Boyd, who authorities say was not wearing a seatbelt, was taken to Cleveland MetroHealth Medical Center, where he later died.
The driver of the GMC was taken to MetroHealth via LifeFlight with unknown injuries. His passenger was treated and released at the scene.
