A Sylvania Township teenager was killed yesterday when her car was struck by a pickup truck on State Rt. 2 near Cousino Road in Jerusalem Township, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.
Jillian Keefer, 17, of 7152 Regents Parkway Blvd. was pinned in the wreckage. After being extricated within minutes after the accident, she was flown to Toledo Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, troopers at the patrol's Walbridge post said.
Anthony Miller, 52, of Findlay, the driver of the truck, was treated at St. Charles Mercy Hospital.
Ms. Keefer was turning eastbound onto Route 2 from a private driveway about 3 p.m. when her car was struck by Mr. Miller's truck, which was westbound. The impact pushed the car halfway off the road, and the truck drove off the right side of the road and struck a house, causing minor damage, troopers said.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts, troopers said.
