Updated: Sunday, August 17 2014, 04:39 PM EDT

JEFFERSON COUNTY. Ohio – One person is dead after a fatal car accident on U.S. Route 22  Sunday afternoon.

Officials with the Ohio State Highway Patrol confirm that a single occupant of the vehicle was killed in the crash just after 3 p.m. Sunday near the Broadacre exit.

Troopers say the vehicle was traveling westbound when it hit the median, overturned and came to a rest in the eastbound lane.

The driver of the car was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash.

Right now, officials say U.S. 22 eastbound is shut down to traffic. Officials hope to have the lanes reopened in about around 5:30 p.m.
