Names of the 16-year-old girl who was killed and the family of five injured when two minivans collided head on on U.S. 6 in Wood County on Saturday were released by the Ohio Highway Patrol yesterday.
Kristen Ledwell, 16, of Mount Hope, W.Va., the driver and only occupant of one of the minivans, was pronounced dead at the scene, troopers at the patrol's Bowling Green post said.
In the other minivan was the family from Ottawa County's Salem Township near Oak Harbor.
The mother, Amy Lutman, 35, was in critical condition in St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo last night.
The father, Ronald Lutman, 49, and the couple's daughters, Hannah, 6, and Emily, 5, were all in serious condition at St. Vincent.
Another child, Dakota, 2, was treated and released from St. Vincent.
The crash occurred at 5:20 p.m. on U.S. 6 near Huffman Road, about 20 miles south of Toledo.
Kristen was eastbound on U.S. 6 east of Bowling Green when she tried to pass a vehicle and collided with the westbound Lutman vehicle, according to the patrol. The area is a passing zone, but the driver she was passing reported traveling at 55 mph, which is the speed limit there, Trooper John Eiden said.
Kristen, who was driving her grandmother's minivan, had taken two passengers from West Virginia to Detroit for a funeral, the trooper said. She was returning to West Virginia alone when she decided to see an aunt in the Sandusky area, he said.
Kristen had had her driver's license for three months.
All occupants of the minivans were wearing seatbelts, the trooper said.
