The Marysville Post of the State Highway Patrol reports that Zack Keller, 24, of Bellefontaine, was driving a 2002 Honda S2000 southbound on 1 when he lost control after cresting a small hill.
The vehicle went off the right side of the road and down an embankment. The car then struck a ditch and a utility pole before coming to rest in a field.
Keller was pronounced dead at the scene by the Logan County Coroner's Office.
He was not wearing a seat belt.
A front seat passenger, Colby Levan, 20, of Bellefontaine, was transported to Grant Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
The West Liberty Fire Department and Macochee Joint Ambulance District assisted at the scene.
Alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
Keller, who graduated from Bellefontaine High School in 2006, was a very accomplished bowler.
The accident remains under investigation.
Six people have died in accidents across Logan County this year.
