At least one of the victims was trapped in the vehicle.

Firefighters and medics from Troy responded and summoned two CareFlight medical helicopters.

The highway was shut down at State Route 55 by the Ohio State Highway Patrol so that the helicopters could land.

The crash remains under investigation.

Officials have not released the name of the person who died.
