BROOKLYN HEIGHTS, Ohio — A 35-year old woman was killed in a crash that occurred in Brooklyn Heights on Christmas Eve, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Around 3:41 p.m., a 2016 Hyundai Sonata was traveling east on the Interstate 480 on-ramp from Brook Park Road when it went off the northeast side of the ramp, through a grassy area, down an embankment and struck a dividing wall, troopers said.
