Wrong-way driver in deadly Ohio crash had health problems, daughter says
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) ' The daughter of the wrong-way driver in a deadly crash on Interstate 75 in Ohio says her mother had medical issues and was not a drinker.
The crash on March 1 killed 69-year-old Winifred Lein and three Bowling Green State University sorority sisters headed on a spring break trip.
In a witness statement released Friday by the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Charmaine Lein did not offer details on her mother's health problems.
But a witness to the crash says the wrong-way driver was going at least 75 mph and never swerved to miss cars.
The witness says she was not driving erratically and several trucks flashed their lights at her.
