A woman was killed, with a teen injured in a crash in Blanchard Township Friday.

Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers were called to U.S. 224 near County Road 5 just after 7 A.M.

Ohio State Troopers say an SUV driven by a woman was going east on 224 when a pickup truck driven by a teen struck the SUV head-on. The pickup then came to a stop in the middle of the road. It is then when a semi truck going west on 224 struck the pickup.

The woman in the SUV, Angela Schumaker, age 39 of Ottawa, was pronounced dead at the scene while the teen who has not been identified, was taken to Blanchard Valley Hospital after suffering serious injuries. The driver of the semi truck was not hurt.

This crash remains under investigation.
