March 2, 2013

The Ohio State Highway Patrol has identified the man who died in a Monday crash as Jarret W. Santee, 30, of Delaware.

According to patrol reports, Santee was driving southbound on US 42 in a 2008 Saturn Vue when he collided with a 2006 Sterling dump truck operated by Ryan W. Kidd, 30, of Hilliard.

The vehicles crashed around 10:15 a.m. on the bridge over the Scioto River, near the intersection on Klondike Road. The patrol’s preliminary investigation suggests that one vehicle drove left of the center line and the two crashed head-on.

Santee was pronounced dead at the scene. Kidd was treated for minor injuries on site.

No citations have yet been issued as the crash remains under investigation by the Delaware Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
