Urbana Woman Dies in Monday Evening Crash in Union County

A fatal motor vehicle crash occurred in the 20000 block of Collins Road in Union County’s Allen Township Monday evening.

 

According to a release, the Union County Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 emergency call at around reporting a two-vehicle head-on crash on Collins Road. 

 

Deputies and units from the Allen Township Fire Department and the Marysville Fire Department responded to the scene and found a 1999 Honda Accord that was traveling northeast on Collins that had struck a 2017 Honda Accord that was traveling southwest on Collins Road. 

 

Two victims were initially transported to Memorial Hospital. 

The driver of the 1999 Honda Accord, identified as 42 year old Erin A. Lee, of Urbana, was then flown to Grant Medical Center where she passed away early this morning. 

The preliminary investigation has determined the 1999 Accord was driven left of center and struck the 2017 Accord head on.

 

 Investigators have determined that drugs may have been a factor in the crash and additional tests are being conducted. 

 

The crash remains under investigation by the Sheriff’s Office. 

 

Collins Road was closed for several hours while the crash was investigated and re-opened at approximately 8:30 Monday night. 

 

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Union County Emergency Management Agency.
