A 37-year-old man died in a vehicle crash Wednesday morning on Route 850 west of Marysville.

Michael J. Houser lost control of a 1998 Subaru Forester for an unknown reason before he struck a dirt embankment near Pine Hill Road in Rye Township, according to state police in Newport.

The Subaru came to rest on its passenger side and was severely damaged, according to police, who said Houser was not wearing a seatbelt.

The crash closed Route 850 in both directions at around 9:40 a.m. The roadway reopened about two hours later.

A passerby who saw the crashed vehicle called 911, but no witnesses were at the crash scene, police said.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to call state police in Newport at 717-567-3110.
