High speeds are believed to be a factor in a crash that claimed the life of a Brookville man over the weekend.

The accident occurred on S.R. 1 and Big Bear Road near the Fayette-Franklin County line late Friday afternoon.

Johnathon Green, 24, who police say was the driver in the crash, was airlifted to University of Cincinnati Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A passenger in the car, William Shoemaker, 25, told investigators that the vehicle reached speeds up to 120 mph.

Shoemaker said they were trying to pass another vehicle when they approached oncoming traffic at the Big Bear intersection. The vehicle went off the roadway and rolled several times.
