Just before 10 p.m. OSHP says two vehicles crashed on SR 306 at mile post 1, according to a release from the highway patrol.

Officers say 68-year-old Chagrin Falls resident Susan Hinkle, who was traveling northbound in a 2019 Audi, went left of center hitting head on a 2015 Dodge truck driven by a 43-year-old, who was traveling south on SR 306.

Hinkle died from the crash.

The man was seriously injured and brought to Hillcrest Hospital.

The crash remains under investigation and alcohol does appear to be a factor.
