State Police said two were killed in a crash in Jackson County.
John E. Littell, 59, of Gandeeville and Wanda F. Simmons, 54, of Leroy died as the result of injuries sustained in a single-vehicle crash that occurred about 10:20 p.m. Tuesday along County Route 56, near Green Hills Country Club in the Ripley area, according to a news release from State Police.
State Police said Littell and Simmons were passengers in a vehicle driven by Brian K. Hunt, 47, of Sandyville. Littell died at the scene, and Simmons was transported to Charleston Area Medical Center, where she died Wednesday from her injuries.
Hunt lost control of his pickup truck and struck a tree on the side of the roadway. State Police said it is believed that alcohol and speed played a role in this incident. Charges may be forthcoming.
