SUV driver killed in crash on I-75 north identified


UPDATE: The woman killed on I-75 north Wednesday afternoon when her SUV rear-ended a semitrailer stopped for construction has been identified as 25-year-old Lauren Hurd, of Tiffin.

Hurd failed to stop in the assured clear distance and hit the semitrailer, which was in the center lane, at about 2:51 p.m., the Ohio Highway Patrol post at Piqua said late Wednesday night.

Ronald Widner, 58, of Laurel Bloomery, Tenn., was driving the semitrailer, the patrol said. Widner was not injured.

Hurd's body was taken to the Montgomery County morgue.

The crash remains under investigation, the patrol said.

EARLIER: The body of the woman killed on I-75 north near Troy has been removed from the wreckage of her SUV and all lanes of the interstate are now open.

The woman was killed when her vehicle rear-ended a semitrailer that was stopped because of construction ahead of it, said Troy fire Platoon Cmdr. Don Pemberton.

The victim, who has died at the scene, has not been identified by name, he said.

The driver of the semi is "shaken," Pemberton said, and was in the back of an Ohio Highway Patrol cruiser.

OHP is the lead investigating agency on the accident, which had traffic rerouting off the interstate and around the accident scene at 4:30 p.m.
