Updated: Thursday, September 5 2013, 12:03 AM EDT


The Lisbon Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash.
The crash happened on State Route 7, less than a quarter mile north of Middle Beaver Road within Elkrun Township.
Officials said the call came in around 6 p.m. that a Ford Ranger was traveling north on State Route 7 when it went off the right side of the road --- hitting a guardrail. The truck then went off the left side of the roadway and down an embankment--- striking a rock, trees and ultimately landing on its roof.
The driver of the truck, 43-year-old Jack Artrup, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The passenger, 45-year-old Pamela Bradds, was transported by medical helicopter to a Pittsburgh hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Officials said Artrup and Bradds were not wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
According to a release, alcohol is suspected.
The crash remains under investigation.
