ROCKY RIVER, OH (WOIO) -

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is currently investigating a one-car fatal crash on the ramp from I-90 to Hilliard Boulevard shortly after 10 p.m. on Sunday.

Brent W. Sheets, of Cleveland, was exiting I-90 from the westbound lanes to Hilliard Boulevard in a 2005 Chevy Cavalier when he drove off the right side of the roadway and struck a guardrail.

The vehicle then crossed both lanes of the ramp, driving into a bridge wall, and overturning on its right side. The vehicle sustained heavy front and right side damage as a result of the collisions.

Sheets was not wearing a seatbelt and was partially ejected out of the passenger side front window.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office responded and pronounced Sheets deceased at the scene. An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death.

The cause of Mr. Sheets driving off the right and left sides of the ramp remains under investigation. The ramp to Hilliard Boulevard was closed for approximately 3 and ½ hours during the on scene investigation.
