An Ashland teen involved in a two-vehicle accident last week has died as result of injuries she sustained in the crash. Christiana Ringler, 16, died Friday, at 2 p.m. at Cleveland Metro Health. She had been in critical condition at the hospital since the accident.

The Ringler family released a statement through MetroHealth through public relations representative Jonah Rosenblum: "We are heartbroken, and know that our community shares in that feeling. We would like to thank the doctors and nurses at MetroHealth and Samaritan Hospital, as well as Ashland Fire and EMS, who worked tirelessly to save her life. We would like to thank our community for their outpouring of support, particularly with Thursday night's candlelight vigil and prayer service. That would have meant a lot to Christianna. She loved people and she loved the Lord Jesus. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her."

Ringler was a passenger in a car driven by Andres Ornelas, 18, of Sunbury, that collided with another vehicle Wednesday night at the intersection of U.S. 42 and County Road 995.

The State Highway Patrol says Ornelas was driving north on County Road 995 when he failed to stop at a stop sign at U.S. 995. His car was struck by a van traveling westbound on U.S. 42 driven by Kevin Nesbit, 24 of Louisville, Ohio.
