MILAN, OH (WTOL) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a Friday morning fatal crash on the Ohio Turnpike in Milan Township.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, a 2017 Ford Explorer driven by Sabastian Demeel, 45, of Northville, Michigan was traveling westbound in the middle lane.

A 2004 Dodge Stratus driven by Corie Fobbs, 18, of Toledo was attempting to pass Dameel in the left lane. However, Fobbs' Dodge sideswiped into the Dameel's Ford.

Fobbs lost control of the vehicle, which went off the right side of the road. The vehicle ended up in a ditch and overturned, ejecting two of the three passengers in the vehicle.

Fobbs was trapped inside the vehicle while passenger Amauri Stenson, 18, was trapped underneath the vehicle.

Two officers and four civilians helped remove Stenson from under the car. Fobbs was later removed from inside the car later.
