The Union County Sheriff's Office says deputies were called to the crash scene on an abandoned railroad bed in Union Township around 8 p.m. Thursday.
The Columbus Dispatch reports they found a 1998 Ford Ranger overturned near a tree about 75 feet from the road.
The driver, 43-year-old Jason O. Morris, of Columbus, was pronounced dead at the scene. His passenger, 41-year-old Dalen A. Mullet, also of Columbus, was transported with injuries. The newspaper says she was hospitalized in stable condition.
An autopsy was scheduled Friday.
