A 60-year-old Dayton man who died following a two-vehicle crash that sent him and another motorist to the hospital Wednesday morning in Dayton has been identified.

Montgomery County Coroner Dr. Kent Harshbarger identified the man as Musaddin Abdullayev. His cause and manner of death have not been determined at this time.

The crash was reported around 8:37 a.m. Wednesday at the intersection of Stanley Avenue and Kuntz Road.

Abdullayev was driving a Toyota Corolla west on Stanley Avenue “apparently at an excessive rate of speed” and ran a red light, hitting a semi truck that was turning onto Stanley Avenue from Kuntz Road, according to a crash report.

The vehicles separated, with the semi coming to a stop in a parking lot on Stanley Avenue.

Abdullayev was taken to Miami Valley Hospital, where he died, according to the report. The driver of the semi was transported to Kettering Health Dayton with suspected minor injuries. There were no other occupants in either vehicle.

About 50 gallons of diesel fuel from the semi was spilled in the crash, which led the intersection to temporarily close, according to 911 dispatchers.
