According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, it happened on state Route 84 at Walter Main Road at around 1 a.m. Thursday.

A 2002 Ford Mustang being driven by Alexandria Struhar, 20, of Ashtabula, was traveling west on state Route 84. A 2008 Chevy Cobalt driven by Adam Wright, 18, of Geneva, failed to stop at the intersection and hit the Ford Mustang in the driver's door.
