One teen is dead, and another seriously injured following a two-vehicle crash Thursday night in Ashland County.

The Ashland Post of the Highway Patrol says the accident occurred at 8:11 p.m. on U.S. 30 at County Road 2175 in Mohican Township.

The patrol says Brooke N. Lewis, 18, of Jeromesville, was driving southbound on County Road 2175 in a 1999 Saturn SE2, when she failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of U.S. 30 West and failed to yield when crossing the eastbound lanes of U.S. 30, where she was struck by a commercial truck.

Lewis was not wearing a seatbelt and was pronounced dead at the scene. Her passenger, Cheyenne M. Spidel, 18, of Perrysville, suffered severe injuries and was flown to Cleveland Metro Hospital where she remains in critical condition.

The driver of the commercial vehicle, Dale A. Douglass, 59, of Dennison, suffered minor injuries and was taken to Ashland Samaritan Hospital for treatment.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash. The crash remains under investigation.
