EDINBURG TOWNSHIP, Ohio — A 72-year-old woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash that occurred in Portage County Friday afternoon, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Around 12:32 p.m., a 2007 Ford Taurus was traveling east on state Route 14 in Edinburg Township and approached a vehicle that was stopped and turning left onto Knapp Road.

The Ford drove left of center to avoid striking the stopped vehicle and struck a 2016 Freightliner Cascadia that was traveling west on SR 14.

The driver of the Ford, 72-year-old Patricia Reese, of Ravenna, was pronounced dead at the scene, troopers said. The driver of the Frightliner was not transported from the scene.

Troopers do not believe impairment to be a factor in the crash.
