CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- The State Highway Patrol has released the identity of a woman killed in a multi-vehicle collision on Interstate 77 on Friday.
According to the Cambridge Post of the State Patrol, 75-year-old Marilyn Snyder of Moundsville, W. Va. was killed on Friday when the GMC SUV in which she was riding struck a semi-truck that had careened through the median and into oncoming traffic. Reports indicate that a Cadillac SUV was traveling north on I-77 near Kimbolton at around 2:00 p.m. Friday when it lost control, struck the guardrail, and re-entered traffic, striking the passenger's side of a semi truck. Both vehicles drove into the median, and the semi continued into the southbound lanes of I-77, where a GMC SUV struck the rear of the semi tractor trailer.
Snyder was pronounced dead at the scene, while three other occupants of that vehicle were life-flighted to a Pittsburgh hospital. Two passengers of the Cadillac SUV were transported to Southeastern Med for treatment. The semi's driver and passenger refused treatment.
Charges may be filed in connection with the case, but at this time, an investigation is ongoing. AVC News will bring you more information as it becomes available.
