MOUNT VERNON — The Mount Gilead Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is currently investigating a two-vehicle, single-fatality crash that occurred at approximately 6 a.m. Thursday on Ohio 3 in Brown Township, Knox County.

Nigel Kelsall, 63, of Biddulph Park, UK, was operating a 2018 Nissan Versa northbound on State Route 3.

Heather Sage, 49, of Loudonville was southbound on State Route 3 operating a 2008 Ford Ranger.
