Single-car accident kills Erie County girl

MILAN, Ohio - A 17-year-old girl was killed yesterday - less than a mile from her home - when her car spun and struck a guardrail on River Road in Erie County's Milan Township, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.

Jordan L. Smith of Milan Township was pronounced dead at the scene, troopers at the patrol's Sandusky post said.

Miss Smith was southbound on River, north of Riverview Drive, about

11:40 a.m., when she failed to round a curve and then overcorrected, causing her car to spin. It broke through a guardrail and went down a small embankment before coming to rest, troopers said.
