A Columbia Station teenager was killed in a single-vehicle crash Wednesday night in Grafton Township.

State troopers were called to a wreck on Capel Road east of State Route 83 around 9:13 p.m. for a 2002 Ford Explorer that went off the left side of the road and hit a tree. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Danielle Eckert, 17, and was taken to University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

According to a release from the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Eckert was not wearing a seat belt. The crash remains under investigation, but alcohol appears to have been a factor.
