COSHOCTON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say the brakes on a sport utility vehicle may have failed before it sped through an intersection and hit two parked cars, killing a central Ohio woman and seriously injuring her husband.

The SUV ended up overturned on a restaurant patio Tuesday in Coshocton, about 70 miles northeast of Columbus. The Coshocton Tribune reports the sheriff's office estimated the SUV was traveling 60 mph when the crash occurred.

A 68-year-old Columbus woman died at the scene. Her 70-year-old husband was flown to a Columbus hospital in serious condition.

The 28-year-old Coshocton man driving the SUV was treated for minor injuries. Deputy Mark Sharrock tells The Columbus Dispatch the man doesn't have a valid driver's license.

No other injuries were reported, and no charges were immediately filed.
