WOODLAWN, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a motorist has been killed after he lost control of his car and it rolled down an embankment in the Village of Woodlawn.

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office says 50-year-old Paul Lyle of Lincoln Heights was speeding as he approached slower traffic on Springfield Pike around 5:45 p.m. Sunday. He tried to go around the cars and lost control of his vehicle. He made an abrupt left turn across all lanes of traffic.

Authorities say Lyle’s car rolled over as it went down the embankment and struck a tree. Lyle was thrown from the vehicle.

Lyle was taken to Bethesda North Hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was not wearing a seat belt and alcohol and drugs are believed to be factors in the crash.
