One dead in three-car crash

One person is confirmed dead in an accident on Ohio 26 this morning.

Drivers of the other two vehicles were taken to Marietta Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No names have been released.

An Ohio State Highway Patrol dispatcher said the three-car crash was reported at 7:38 a.m. on Ohio 26 about a mile north of Goose Run Rd. That part of Ohio 26 is closed at Pete Baker Hill. Neighbors said that is a stretch of road that has had problems.

Troopers are still on the scene investigating and more information will be forthcoming.
