The Canton post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is looking into a one car crash Saturday afternoon that killed the vehicle's driver.
The patrol says it happened at about 2 PM Saturday on Mottice Drive in Sandy Township, Stark County.
Troopers say 57 year-old Gary Bovie of New Philadelphia was driving a minivan eastbound on Mottice Drive when his vehicle failed to negotiate a curve and went off the side of the road.
It then struck a utility pole and overturned. Bovie wasn't wearing a safety belt and was ejected from the minivan.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers say the driver's side door showed signs it may not have been able to be properly latched when closed, and that may be a factor in Bovie's ejection from the car.
The crash is still under investigation.
