CINCINNATI (AP) - Authorities in southwest Ohio say a 21-year-old female passenger has been killed in an early morning accident on Interstate 275.

The Hamilton County sheriff’s office says Destinie Stevens of Cincinnati was pronounced dead at the scene in Whitewater Township west of Cincinnati. Authorities say she was in a 2007 Mazda 3 being driven by 25-year-old Ryan Kennedy of Cincinnati. They say Kennedy lost control of his vehicle and hit a bridge parapet twice, disabling his car in a northbound lane.

Investigators say Kennedy’s car was hit from behind by a Freightliner box truck at about 3:05 a.m. EST.

Kennedy and a male passenger were hospitalized. Investigators say none of those in Kennedy’s car wore seatbelts.

The truck driver wasn’t hurt. Investigators said he was using safety restraints.

Investigation is continuing.
