A multiple vehicle crash on U.S. 50 in Chillicothe has claimed the life of a 24-year-old woman.

On May 23 at 12:38 pm, a driver of a Ford Mustang went left of center in the eastbound lane of U.S. 50 near Maple Grove Road. A driver of a Toyota Rav 4 was traveling westbound at the same time when the Mustang went into her lane and caused her to swerve to avoid a crash.

The Mustang hit the left front of the woman’s Rav 4 and caused the vehicle to turn counter-clockwise after being hit. The woman’s vehicle came to a stop on top of the guardrail on the right side of the road while the driver of the Mustang came to a stop in the eastbound lane of the road.

Both of the drivers were the only occupants in their vehicles. The woman of the Mustang was taken to Adena Regional Medical Center by ambulance. According to highway patrol officials, she was pronounced dead at the hospital from the severe injuries she sustained during the accident.

The driver of the Rav 4 was flown by medical helicopter to Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. She was in critical, but stable condition after the crash and had severe injuries from the impact of the accident.

Another vehicle, a Dodge Stratus not involved in the crash with the two women, swerved to avoid hitting the Rav 4 and crashed into the guardrail. The Dodge Stratus was traveling westbound as well. No one in the vehicle reported that they had any injuries. The crash remains under investigation.
