WAYNE COUNTY, Ohio — The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a crash in Wayne County that killed a 55-year-old woman from Pennsylvania on Monday, according to state troopers.

The crash happened at around 4:00 p.m. on US-250 east of Oil City Road in Franklin Township in Wayne County.

The crash involved a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado hauling a flatbed trailer driven by a 62-year-old Mansfield man and 2017 Lincoln MK-C driven by an 18-year-old Pennsylvania woman.

Investigators said the 18-year-old woman was attempting to turn left out of a private driveway on US 250 when she failed to yield from the private driveway and was struck by the truck traveling westbound on US-250.

Her vehicle spun around several times, traveling off the north side of the road. Her vehicle traveled across the centerline, off the south of the road before hitting a ditch, a utility pole and a stop sign.

The 18-year-old driver sustained serious injuries from the crash. Her front passenger, a 55-year-old woman identified as Robin S. Vaglia, 55, of Scenery Hill, Pennsylvania, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the truck did not receive any life-threatening injuries.

Alcohol does not seem to be a factor in the crash. Both drivers were wearing seat belts. The crash remains under investigation.
