NIMISHILLEN, Ohio (AP) — A two-vehicle crash on a highway in northeastern Ohio has left four people dead, authorities said.

The crash on state Route 153 in Nimishillen occurred around 5 p.m. Thursday, according to the Stark County Sheriff’s Office.

A vehicle that apparently was being driven at “a high rate of speed” went off the right side of the roadway, authorities said. The driver lost control of the vehicle, which then went into the eastbound lane and collided with another vehicle.

Both vehicles eventually came to rest on the south side of the roadway. Three people were in one of the vehicles, while the driver of the other was traveling alone.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, authorities said. The names of those killed have not been released.
