Two local residents died around 6:50 a.m. Wednesday when their cars collided with one another in northern Seneca County.

Both Clyde resident Dillon Spencer, 21; and Bellevue resident James Turner, 45; sustained fatal injuries and died on scene, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred at Township Road 32 and Country Road 34, about 3 miles south of Clyde.

A patrol report indicates Spencer, driving a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix, ignored a stop sign and drove through the intersection. His car smashed into Turner's Dodge Ram pickup truck.

Both vehicles traveled off the intersection's northwest corner and caught on fire.

The crash remains under investigation. Alcohol doesn't appear to be a factor.
