A man from Lawrence County died Thursday morning in a crash on U.S. 35 involving a car and a semi, the Ohio State Highway Patrol says.

Aaron P. Clement, 34, of Kitts Hill, is identified as the victim who died.

Troopers say Clement was headed west on U.S. 35 in a 2003 Honda Civic when the accident happened around 6:30 a.m.

Investigators say the driver of the semi failed to yield, turning left onto U.S. 35 East from Cain Road (Township Road 213). The car driven by Clement struck the left rear of the tractor-trailer.

The semi driver, 26, was not hurt in the crash. He hasn't been charged at this time, so his name is being withheld.

Clement was pronounced dead at the scene by the Jackson County Coroner’s office.

U.S. 35 was closed about two hours during the investigation.
