The Wooster Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal crash that occurred Saturday afternoon.

According to OSHP, around 3 p.m., a 74-year-old woman was driving a GMC eastbound on State Route 604 when she failed to yield from a stop sign after initially stopping. She pulled into the intersection and struck the driver’s side door of a Ford pickup truck traveling southbound on State Route 83.
