MOHICAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — An 18-year-old Jeromesville teen died Thursday night after a collision with a commercial truck.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, it happened at 8:11 p.m. on U.S. 30 at County Road 2175 in Mohican Township.
Reports state that Brooke N. Lewis, 18, of Jeromesville, was driving south on County Road 2175 in a 1999 Saturn SE2. Lewis failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of U.S. 30 westbound and failed to yield when crossing the eastbound lanes of U.S. 30.
Her vehicle was struck by a commercial truck.
Lewis was pronounced dead at the scene. An 18-year-old passenger in her car suffered severe injuries and was taken by medical helicopter to a Cleveland hospital, where she was listed in critical condition.
The driver of the commercial vehicle suffered minor injuries.
Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash. Failure to yield for both a stop sign and a yield sign appears to have contributed to the crash, according to police.
The crash remains under investigation.
