A West Toledo woman died after her car hit a utility pole near Holland and Reynolds roads in Maumee.

Vanessa L. Perales, 18, of 1330 West Alexis Rd., was pronounced dead at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, where she was flown by air ambulance.

She was driving east on Holland approaching Reynolds about 5:25 p.m. Thursday when she lost control of her car as it entered a curve.

The car left the right side of the road and hit the pole, Maumee police said.

Ms. Perales was extricated from her car and taken to St. Luke's Hospital. She later was flown to St. Vincent.

Police said she was wearing a seat belt and that alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the accident.
