Harrison County, OH - Emergency crews responded to a call of a head-on collision on US-22 near C.R. 51 in Harrison County early Friday morning.

Authorities confirmed Bryan Westlake, 36, died in the crash.

Officials at the scene said Bryan Ligget, 32, was transported to a hospital in serious condition, after witnesses say he allegedly swerved onto the other side of the road, crashing into Westlake’s car.   

Troopers say a toxicology screening will be done on both drivers as common procedure. They also note that a full report will be handed over to the prosecutor, and the prosecutor will decide whether any charges will be filed against Ligget.  

Both lanes of traffic were closed for about four hours this morning, but are now open.  

Troopers would like to remind drivers that they can call #677 to report dangers on the roadways.
