Medina woman killed in Grafton Township crash


GRAFTON TWP. -- A one-car crash killed a 25-year-old Medina woman in Grafton Township early Saturday.

Corrine Reid, 25, of Medina, was driving a 2002 Jeep Liberty southbound on Cowley Road about 2 a.m. when she drove off the right side of the road, according to a release from the Ohio Highway Patrol.

Her vehicle re-entered the road, lost control and slid off the right side before hitting a ditch.

The Jeep overturned, and Reid was ejected. The vehicle struck a utility pole and several trees before stopping on its top.

Reid was transported by Grafton Township Fire Department to University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center, where she died from her injuries sustained in the crash.

There were no other occupants in the vehicle, and no other vehicles were involved.

Speed, alcohol and seat belt use are being considered as factors in the crash, according to the patrol.

Troopers said Reid was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.
