WAYNESBURG, Ohio - A woman from Carrollton was killed after troopers said the driver of a minivan crossed the center line and struck her car head-on in Stark County.
The crash happened at about 1:20 p.m. Wednesday on State Route 43 in Waynesburg.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol said 28-year-old Ashley Dendak of Carollton was driving her GMC Safari south on the road and crossed into the path of a Jeep Wrangler, driven by 52-year-old Marsha Lowe of Carrollton.
The collision caused Lowe’s car to go off the side of the road and flip over, landing on its top and throwing Lowe out of the vehicle, troopers said.
The Stark County Coroner’s Office pronounced Lowe dead at the scene.
According to the OSHP, Dendak suffered non-life threatening injuries. Her passenger, 43-year-old James Stine of Carrollton, suffered minor injuries and refused treatment at the scene.
Troopers said all three people involved were not wearing a seatbelt.
The patrol said the final results of the investigation will be passed along to the Canton City Prosecutor’s Office to see if any charges will be filed.
Investigators are still looking into what caused Dendak to cross the center line.
