WESTFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Two men were killed Sunday when the car they were riding in crashed on Buffham Road in Westfield Township.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol tells Fox 8 that Martin Davis, 30, of Lodi was driving a Camaro east on Buffham Road at a high rate of speed. The car traveled off the road, hitting  a utility pole. It then continued on through a yard and hit a tree.

Davis and his passenger, Kevin Scholz, 29, of Redding, California were both killed. Neither man was wearing a seat belt and the Patrol says that in addition to the high speed, alcohol appears to have played a factor in the accident.

The Patrol says they are continuing their investigation.
