A woman was killed in a Delaware County crash last Thursday. Authorities are investigating accident.

Details of the Delaware Crash

According to the Columbus Dispatch, a woman from Frederickstown was killed in a multi-vehicle crash that involved a dump truck on Thursday evening near Sanbury.

62-year-old Suzanne R. Baird died at the scene of the accident on Route 36 near the intersection of Condit Road right before 5 p.m., according to State Highway Patrol.

Baird was headed west on Route 36 and attempted to make a left turn onto Condit Road when she failed to yield to a dump truck that was travelling east on Route 36. 57-year-old Nathan Shellenbarger was operating the dump truck.

The initial collision resulted in a chain reaction involving two other vehicles.

After the crash, the dump truck then went off the side of the road and into a Northstar Automotive parking lot where it hit three unoccupied vehicles.

Information about Accidents at Intersections

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  • Roughly 22 percent of accidents that are intersection-related are a result of a vehicle attempting to turn left at the intersection.
  • Another 22 percent involve one of the vehicles involved in the accident to be forced off the road.
  • Additionally, the use of turn signals plays a significant role in the frequency of motor vehicle accidents that happen at intersections.
