COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say two men in a semitrailer have been killed after clipping the back of an SUV entering Interstate 71 northbound near Columbus.
The Franklin County Sheriff's Office says the accident occurred around 6 a.m. Sunday in Pleasant Township.
The sheriff's office says the driver of the semitrailer pulling a milk tanker lost control and overturned after hitting the back of the SUV entering the interstate. Forty-one-year-old James Ross of Joelton, Tennessee, and 22-year-old Skyler Davis of Russellville, Kentucky, were ejected from the semitrailer and pronounced dead at the scene.
None of the five occupants in the SUV driven by a Texas man were injured.
The sheriff's office says it's unclear who was driving the semitrailer or if the men were using seatbelts.
