BOWLING GREEN -- A Bowling Green State University student who was behind the wheel when a wrong-way driver slammed into her car on I-75 March 2 died of blunt-force trauma, an autopsy concluded.
Christina Goyette, 19, of Bay City, Mich., had no alcohol or drugs in her system at the time of the crash, according to Wood County Coroner Dr. Douglas Hess. He has ruled her death accidental.
The coroner's office has not yet received the toxicology testing results of the wrong-way driver, Winifred "Dawn" Lein, 69, of Perrysburg Township. Lein was driving south in the northbound lanes of I-75 between Perrysburg and Bowling Green about 2:15 a.m. when her vehicle struck Ms. Goyette's northbound car. Ms. Goyette and two of her passengers, Sarah Hammond, 21, of Yellow Springs, Ohio, and Rebekah Blakkolb, 20, of Aurora, Ohio, were killed. Two other BGSU students in Ms. Goyette's car -- Kayla Somoles, 19, of Parma, Ohio, and Angelica Mormile, 19, of Garfield Heights, Ohio -- were seriously injured but are recovering.
The young women, all members of Alpha Xi Delta sorority, were on their way to Detroit Metro Airport to catch an early morning flight to the Dominican Republic for spring break when the crash occurred.
Lt. Dean Laubacher, commander of the Ohio Highway Patrol's Bowling Green post, said Friday that investigators have no new information about why Lein was traveling the wrong way on the interstate.
