The Harrison County Sheriff's Department said a 78-year-old Salem area man somehow veered off the side of Route 50 and struck a drain culvert.
His passenger, an 82-year-old woman from Salem, died at the scene. The driver was flown by Air Evac Lifeteam to Ruby Memorial Hospital.
Deputies are still trying to figure out what caused the driver to go off the road.
