    DARKE COUNTY, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - A Hamilton man was killed in a head-on crash in Darke County while he was reportedly trying to pass a semi.

    Officials believe 67-year-old John Cecil was following a semi on U.S. Route 127 when he tried to pass it, and crashed into another semi on the other side of the road. That driver was treated and released at the scene.

    The road was closed down for about 6 hours, partly because the crash caused diesel fuel to spill into a side ditch.

    The Darke County Sheriff's Office is continuing to investigate the crash.
