A Richwood woman was claimed in an early Sunday morning one-vehicle crash that occurred in Union County, just west of the Delaware County.
Troopers from the Marysville Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol report Shelby L. McClincy, 37, was in a westbound 2004 Honda Civic on Hopewell Road in Leesburg Township about 6:49 a.m. when the car traveled off the left side of the road, and struck a utility pole before coming to rest.
Another occupant, Gearld Keeton, 45, of Magnetic Springs was transported by Medflight ground transportation to the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
Ms. McClincy was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers are still investigating the crash, and at press time hadn’t revealed who was driving. Alcohol use is suspected.
Troopers from the patrol’s crash reconstruction unit along with the Union County Sheriff’s Office, Leesburg Township Fire and EMS and Kare Medical Transportation Services assisted at the scene.
