Woman killed in single-vehicle crash

HARPERSFIELD TOWNSHIP — The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a single-vehicle crash that resulted in a fatality.

At approximately 4:24 p.m. Sunday, troopers responded to a traffic crash on State Route 307 in Harpersfield Township.

Preliminary investigation shows that Sandra A. Willis, 52, of Austinburg, was traveling east on SR 307 in a 1999 Subaru Forester when she failed to negotiate a curve, drove off the right side of the roadway, and struck a sign and a culvert.

The vehicle overturned, ejecting Willis, then struck a utility pole, overturned again, and came to a rest on its wheels. Willis was transported by ambulance to UH Geneva Medical Center where she was pronounced deceased.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Willis was not wearing a safety belt at the time of the crash. Tests will be conducted to learn if drugs or alcohol were being used by the driver.
