MARIETTA - A McConnelsville man was killed in a single-vehicle accident in Washington County Saturday morning.
Matthew Strode, 29, was driving south on Reed Road at 7:27 a.m. Saturday and drove his 2002 Chevy truck off the left side of the roadway where it struck a tree, according to a report from the Marietta Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
The truck rolled over into a creek bed before coming to rest.
