UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a 25-year-old man is dead after a suspected drunken driving accident outside Ohio’s capital city.

Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputies say a car ran a red light and collided with another car at around 9 p.m. Thursday on a busy roadway in Upper Arlington.

Brandon Sega, a passenger in the backseat of the second car, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the second car was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition. A third passenger was also hospitalized and is expected to survive.

Authorities say the first car was driven by 32-year-old Daniel Merz. He was hospitalized and is expected to survive.

Authorities say alcohol is believed to be a factor.

It is unclear if Merz will be charged.
