BELLEVUE, Ohio — A woman was killed in a car crash when she was rear-ended while stopped at a traffic signal.

It happened Tuesday around 11:11 p.m. on US 20 near North Sandusky Street in her hometown of Bellevue.

The Norwalk Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol identified the victim as Tracy Albright, 36.

After she was hit from behind, both vehicles caught fire.

The other vehicle, a Mercury Grand Marquis, continued through the intersection and hit another car.  That driver was treated at the scene.

All four people in the Mercury suffered serious injuries and officials said no one was wearing a seat belt.

Albright’s seat belt use was not immediately known.

US 20 was closed for about three hours after the crash, which remained under investigation.
