BETHEL TWP, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - An 82 year old woman was killed in a crash at the intersection of South Palmer Road and Bellefontaine Road Wednesday evening.
Lt. Todd Tennant with the Miami County Sheriff's Office said the woman was at a stop sign at the intersection when she pulled out in front of a truck that had the right of way on Bellefontaine Road and was hit in the side by the truck.
Officials do not believe speed was a factor at the time of the crash, and Lt. Tennant said it was more likely driver inattention or potential visibility issues played a role. The crash is still under investigation.
The driver of the truck had minor injuries, but was taken to the hospital to be checked out.
