One dead in Troy crash

TROY — One man is dead following a one vehicle crash on Friday evening.

Sgt.Dominic Burnside of Troy Police Department said that Lawrence E. Earley, 63, of Piqua lost his life after crashing and overturning his truck on South Dorset Road.

Dispatchers from Miami County sent Troy medics, fire, and police were sent to South Dorset Road at Trinity Church around 7:30 p.m. on a reported roll-over crash.

Troy medics requested CareFlight to respond to the scene but later canceled the medical helicopter when it was determined that the lone occupant was deceased at the scene.

A witness to the crash said that the pickup truck was northbound on South Dorset when, for unknown reason, the driver drove left of center, over a curb, striking a tree, before rolling over, pinning the driver.

Troy police confirmed the crash as a fatality and that the family of the victim have been notified.

The crash remains under investigation. The name of the victim has not been released.
