WAYNESBURG, Ohio - A Carrollton woman was killed when she was thrown from her Jeep, which then landed on top of her.
The two-car crash happened on Wednesday at about 1:20 p.m. in the village of Waynesburg in Stark County.
The driver of a GMC Safari went left of center on state Route 43 near Ridgeview Drive and hit a Jeep Wrangler, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
The Jeep was forced from the road, overturned and ejected the driver, Marsha E. Lowe, 52. Troopers said the car landed on its side on top of Lowe. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The 28-year-old driver of the other car was taken to Aultman Hospital. Her 43-year-old passenger suffered minor injuries, but refused treatment.
None of those involved were wearing seat belts.
The crash is still under investigation and when it’s complete, will be turned over to the Canton City Prosecutor’s Office for possible charges, according to the patrol.
