DETAILED FORECAST

Overnight: Steadier widespread precipitation is now entering the Miami Valley meaning the critical time to watch road conditions has arrived. Initially tracking rain and freezing rain, but expect some snowfall to mix in as we continue over the next several hours. This will be a changing forecast and keep in mind that ground temperatures are below freezing, so all precipitation types will likely freeze on contact leading to icy conditions for the morning drive.

Driver, 18, killed in two-vehicle crash on U.S. 33 in western Auglaize County

Published: Monday, April 23, 2018 @ 8:50 PM

An 18-year-old St. Marys, Ohio, woman was killed Monday when an SUV hit her sedan broadside after she apparently failed to stop at a stop sign at U.S. 33 and south Kettlersville Road, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said in a statement released tonight.

Heaven Leigh Bolinger died at the scene, according to the statement from the Wapakoneta post. She was taken to Bayliff & Eley Funeral Home in Wapakoneta. 

Charles Estle, 24, of Mendon, Ohio, was driving the Nissan SUV that struck the driver's side of Bolinger's Oldsmobile 4-door. He was taken to Lima Memorial Hospital where he was treated for cuts and bruises, then released, a patrol sergeant said. 

Both people were wearing their seatbelts, according to the patrol, and alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the accident in western Auglaize County that occurred about 3:05 p.m. 

The collision sent Bolinger's vehicle into the median. Members of the Buckland Fire Department extricated her from the wreckage. 

Estle's vehicle ended up on the westbound berm of U.S. 33.
