(BARTHOLOMEW CO.) - A Friday afternoon crash involving a passenger-vehicle and a semi resulted in the death of a Columbus man.

According to Judy Jackson of the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department, at 12:54 p.m. police and medics responded to the scene on 25th Street, just east of County Road 500 East.

Investigators say that, for unknown reasons, the westbound vehicle, driven by 24-year-old Samuel R. Winick, veered into the eastbound lane and crashed in to the semi tractor trailer.

Winick perished in the crash, which closed a section of 25th Street for nearly three-hours.

Jackson says that the driver of the semi was 65-year-old Gregory Freeman of Columbus, Ohio. His condition has not been released.

The Sheriff's Department says that the investigation of the crash is ongoing.
