SILVERTON, Ohio (AP) — Deputies say alcohol or drugs may have been involved in a wrong-way crash in southwestern Ohio that left a 23-year-old woman dead and another driver hospitalized.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office says it happened just after 2:30 a.m. Thursday on Interstate 71 in the village of Silverton, near Cincinnati.

Deputies said Chelsie Owens of Oxford was driving her Mazda 626 south in the northbound lanes of the interstate. She sideswiped one car before crashing head-on into a Volkwagen Jetta.

Owens was dead at the scene. The driver of the Jetta, Michael Thompson, was taken to a Cincinnati hospital in stable condition.

Everybody involved was wearing seat belts.
