A 20-year-old woman died late Tuesday in a one-vehicle crash on Dawkins Road in eastern Allen County, the county sheriff's department said today.
The woman, who was not identified, was a passenger in a car driven by a 21-year-old man in the 17000 block of Dawkins about 11:30 p.m., the sheriff's department said in a statement.
The vehicle was headed west on Dawkins Road when it left the road and hit an embankment, the statement said. It then became airborne and struck two trees.
The woman died at the scene, police said. The driver was not injured. Both occupants were wearing seat belts, and alcohol does not appear to have been a factor, the statement said.
The crash remains under investigation by the sheriff's department.
