RAVENNA, Ohio (AP) - A woman has died in a one-vehicle crash in northeast Ohio that injured the car’s driver.

The Ravenna post of the State Highway Patrol says the woman was killed when the car she was in ran off State Route 305 in Portage County and struck a utility pole and a tree.

A statement from the patrol says 35-year-old Ginger Scheel, of Kent, was dead at the scene of the accident that occurred around 3 PM Wednesday.

Troopers say 27 year old Michael Sweet, of Kent, was driving the car. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Scheel and Sweet were wearing their seatbelts. Investigators said alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.
