SWANTON, Ohio (WIVB) — Ohio authorities say a 31-year-old Buffalo man has been killed after being struck by a tractor-trailer on the Ohio Turnpike after his own vehicle hit a deer.

The state Highway Patrol reports that Hanad Mohamed was fatally injured at about 2:05 a.m. Saturday in northwest Ohio.

Troopers say he had gotten out of his 2006 Nissan Altima after striking a deer, which left his car disabled in the left lane of the westbound side.

The tractor-trailer then hit him.

The other driver and his passenger weren’t hurt. The crash caused a two-hour closure of the westbound lanes.

The crash remains under investigation.
