A man shot and killed after he crashed his car and struggled with an Ohio police officer was a 26-year-old college student and citizen of the United Arab Emirates, officials said on Tuesday.

Saif Nasser Mubarak Alameri, a student at Cleveland's Case Western Reserve University, died from a gunshot wound to the head on Sunday and his death has been ruled homicide, the Summit County Medical Examiner's office said.

Police officers responded to a call around 3 p.m. about an erratic driver on the Ohio Turnpike in Hudson, Ohio, 30 miles (48 km) southeast of Cleveland, police said in a statement. The driver, Alameri, eventually lost control of his vehicle, which flipped, and he fled into the nearby woods.
