Tuscarawas County, Ohio - The New Philadelphia Highway Patrol Post is investigating a two-vehicle crash in Warwick Township that claimed the life of a Uhrichsville woman Saturday evening.
Troopers say 56-year-old Jackie L. Demattio was the passenger in an SUV that went left of center on U.S. 36 after the driver lost control of the vehicle. The SUV was then struck by a pickup truck traveling in the opposite direction, injuring Demattio and both drivers. They were all transported to Trinity Hospital Twin City, where Demattio later died from her injuries.
Troopers say seatbelts were in use by all three individuals involved in the crash. Drugs and alcohol are not suspected as factors.
