Napoleon woman killed in 1-car crash

A Napoleon woman died early Monday in a one-car crash on State Rt. 424, Napoleon police reported yesterday.

Jennifer M. Counts, 19, was killed when her westbound 1997 Geo Metro went off the north side of the road and hit a guardrail, then veered back across the road and hit the south guardrail, Lt. Colby Carroll said. The car rolled and ended up on its left side.

A witness helped get Ms. Counts and her passenger, Michael Thompson, 21, of Napoleon, out of the car. Both were taken to Henry County Hospital, where Mr. Thompson was treated.

The accident was reported at 3:27 a.m., the lieutenant said. It remains under investigation.
