LEBANON, N.H. (WCAX) - Police in New Hampshire are investigating an off-road crash that left one man dead and sent another to the hospital.

It happened in Lebanon shortly before 10 a.m. on Monday.

Police say Michael Michalenoick, 59, of Lebanon, was driving a Jeep on private property off the Eastman Hill Road when he lost control and the vehicle overturned. Michalenoick and his passenger were both ejected from the vehicle. Michalenoick died at the scene. His passenger was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
