St. C. man dies in crash

FLUSHING — William B. Graham, 53, of St. Clairsville died early Sunday after he was ejected from the vehicle he was driving on Ohio 149 south, said Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. Todd McDonald.

About 1 a.m., Graham’s vehicle, a 2006 Hyundai Azera, traveled off the left side of the road, hit an embankment and rolled, ejecting him. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Belmont County coroner at 2:03 a.m.

McDonald said that results of Graham’s intoxication test are pending, but it is believed speed and impairment are factors in the crash.

The wreck occurred near mile post 28 in Union Township.
