15 year old died in crash

NEGLEY — The highway patrol is investigating a fatal one-vehicle rollover crash that occurred Thursday night on state Route 154 in Middleton Township.

According to the patrol, Corey M.S. Scott, 18, of Negley, was driving on Route 154 west of Negley when his vehicle ran off of the right side of the road, striking a guardrail. The vehicle then crossed back over the road, traveled off the left side, striking a ditch, embankment and utility pole before overturning several times.

Scott sustained minor injuries as a result of the crash. A 15-year-old girl was in the passenger seat and was partially ejected and pronounced dead on the scene. Both Scott and the passenger were not wearing their seat belts.

The patrol has not yet identified the 15-year-old.

Drugs are suspected as a factor in the crash, the patrol said.

Negley Fire and EMS and the Ohio Department of Transportation assisted the patrol on the scene.
