One person was killed and another was hospitalized after a crash involving a rig in Licking County.
 
The crash closed state Route 37, north of S.R. 161, at about 5 a.m. The road was reopened around 9:05 a.m.
 
Authorities said Lisa Marie Kelleher, 40, of Granville was pronounced dead at Licking Memorial Hospital.
 
Her husband, John C. Kelleher, was hospitalized at Grant Medical Center in Columbus with serious injuries. Officials told WBNS-10TV that he is expected to survive.
 
The crash occurred when Lisa Kelleher was driving westbound on Moots Run Road and her car struck the tractor-trailer loaded with corrugated cardboard that was headed northbound at the S.R. 37 intersection.

Investigators believe that she failed to yield at stop sign.
 
"The car actually drove up into the under carriage of his semi, the back tires of his tractor trailer actually rolled over the engine compartment right at the dashboard of that car," said Sgt. Jeff Dallas of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
 
Troopers said that they do not believe road conditions or alcohol were contributing factors to the crash.
 
The truck driver suffered minor injuries.
