Troopers say a 49-year-old man from Columbus “suffered an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head” which caused the crash near the intersection of Belmont Avenue and Tibbets-Wick Road on September 1 just after 8 a.m.
Witnesses of the crash initially said the car was going northbound on Belmont, crossed the center line and drove into a field before flipping over several times. Troopers said the vehicle also hit another car that was stopped at a red light.
Liberty Police found a firearm in the car.
No one else was hurt in the crash.
