The woman has been identified as Crystal Cieza, of Westlake.

According to police, the crash happened just after 3 a.m. near Detroit and Basset Roads.

Police say Cieza was driving a 2018 Ford Taurus on Detroit Road when the car veered off the road and hit a utility pole on the south side of the intersection.
