MARION, Ohio — Two men have died and two others are being treated for incapacitating injuries after a two-vehicle crash in central Ohio.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol says the accident took place around 1:30 a.m. Sunday at State Route 203 and Keener Road near Marion.
Killed were driver 26-year-old Eric A. Richie and a passenger in his 1998 Honda CRV, 24-year-old Jarred J. Bullion. Another passenger, 19-year-old Quinton A. Owens, was injured.
Richie was southbound on 203 when the 2003 Pontiac Grand Am driven by 31-year-old Robert A. Persinger Jr. failed to stop for a stop sign, striking Richie's vehicle.
Persinger and Owens were both being treated at Grant Medical Center Hospital in Columbus.
All four men were from Marion. None was wearing a seatbelt.
Troopers say alcohol use is suspected.
