The Licking County Sheriff's Department responded to a fatal traffic crash Tuesday morning.

The accident occurred between Hopewell Drive and Dorsey Mill Road.

A Big-O truck was southbound on State Route 13 when a red Ford Escape attempted to turn left into a driveway in front of the truck. The truck then struck the passenger side of the Ford Escape vehicle, and pushed it over 100 feet off the roadway, through an AEP utility pole and into the side of a parked Asplundh truck.

The driver of the Ford Escape was killed in the crash.

The roadway was closed for most of the day Tuesday.  

Deputies say the investigation is ongoing.
