Ohio woman loses life in one-car Ashtabula Township crash
ASHTABULA TOWNSHIP, OH – An Orient, Ohio woman lost her life in an early morning crash in Ashtabula Township Sunday.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol reports that 28-year-old Amanda Millard died when the car she was a passenger in failed to handle a curve on Jefferson Road shortly before 2 a.m. The car drove off the road, hitting a mailbox, a fence and eventually a tree before stopping.
The driver of the car, a 25-year-old Ashtabula man, had non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital.
