One person is dead and another one is injured after a two-car accident Thursday morning on Ohio 61 south of Dinninger Road, near Shelby.

The Mansfield Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred around 5:30 a.m.

The patrol says Kimberly R. Welch, 22, was driving a 1997 Honda Accord northbound on Ohio 61 when her car slid left of center and struck another vehicle head-on driven by William A. Funk of Willard.

Funk was transported to Shelby MedCentral Hospital with several injuries. Funk is listed in critical but stable condition.

Welch was pronounced dead at the scene by the Richland County Coroner's Office.

Sgt. Toby Smith said it appears icy road conditions and drifting snow may have caused the accident.

The crash remains under investigation.
