A 25-year-old Greenfield woman was killed Thursday afternoon in a one-vehicle accident on SR 753 Southeast, just north of Hukill Road in Fayette County.
At 1:34 p.m., a 2000 Chevrolet Blazer driven by Alison R. Wylie was headed southbound on SR 753 before it traveled off the right side of the roadway, according to Fayette County Sheriff Vernon Stanforth.
“The crash investigation revealed that Wylie over-corrected and lost control, traveling off the right side of the roadway and overturned before coming to rest,” said Stanforth. “It was determined that Wylie was not wearing a safety belt and was ejected from the vehicle.”
Wylie was pronounced dead at the scene by the Fayette County Coroner’s Office.
The vehicle sustained heavy damage and was towed from the scene. Members of the Sheriff’s Traffic Crash Reconstruction Unit were called in to conduct the ongoing investigation.
Also assisting at the scene were members of the Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District, Fayette County EMS, the Ohio Department of Transportation, and the Sheriff’s Rescue Unit.
