Highway patrol says driver in wrong-way crash that killed 4 in Ohio had just left work
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) ' Ohio's highway patrol says a wrong-way driver who died in an interstate crash that also killed three sorority sisters had left work fewer than 30 minutes before police received the first 911 call about the car.
The patrol's Bowling Green post says 69-year-old Winifred Lein of Perrysburg checked into her job at Toledo's Jeep plant at 5:52 p.m. on March 1 and left the plant at 1:47 a.m. the following day.
The patrol said Friday the first 911 call came at 2:14 a.m., two minutes before a trooper spied the car on the highway, which was just seconds before the crash.
The patrol says no businesses around I-75 said they saw Lein before the crash.
The patrol continues to investigate where Lein got on the highway.
