Woman Dies In I-71 Semi Crash
A woman is dead following a crash on Interstate 71.
It happened around 7:45 Friday night.
41-year-old Thuy Lu was a passenger in a Freighliner Tractor driven by 39-year-old Hoang Truong of California.
The Delaware County State Highway Patrol said the semi was traveling in a southbound lane a few miles north of the U.S. 36/37 exit, when Truong lost control.
The vehicle slid across all three lanes of traffic before flipping over into a ditch.
Lu was partially ejected and became trapped under the truck. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troung was transported to Riverside Methodist Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Troopers said speed was a factor in the crash.
Authorities are still investigating.
