COLUMBUS, Ohio — A woman was killed and three other people were seriously injured in a crash on Interstate 70 near Reynoldsburg Monday morning.
Just after 12:05 a.m., the Columbus Division of Police says 43-year-old Latosha Jordan, of Columbus, was heading west on I-70 toward the exit ramps to I-270 in a 2016 Ford Explorer when she struck a freeway attenuator.
She then got out of the vehicle where the passenger, a 35-year-old man, stayed inside.
A 49-year-old man witnessed the crash from an apartment complex near the freeway and attempted to assist Jordan and the man.
At that point, police say a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu was driving west on I-70 and struck the Ford Explorer, causing Jordan and the 49-year-old man to be thrown from the scene.
Jordan was pronounced dead at the scene. The man was taken to Mount Carmel East Hospital in critical condition.
The driver of the Chevrolet Malibu and the passenger inside the Ford Explorer were taken to local hospitals for injuries that were severe but not life-threatening.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
I-70 at Brice Road has reopened after being closed for several hours for the investigation.
