SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) — Both drivers were killed in an early-morning wrong-way accident in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 in southwest Ohio.

Troopers with the Ohio Highway Patrol say each driver involved in the collision near Springfield was riding alone. Both were pronounced dead at the scene Sunday morning.

State police say the wrong-way driver was 24-year-old Francois Hagenimana of Kettering. The other driver was 28-year-old Jason Fricke of Westerville.

The Dayton Daily News (bit.ly/16VfBSp) reported that Hagenimana was an assistant football coach at his alma mater Centerville High School and played for Ashland University.

Several 911 calls were received before the crash with drivers reporting a wrong-way driver.

After the initial impact, each vehicle veered right, sending one car into the wire barricade and the second into a grassy embankment.
