POMEROY, Ohio (WTAP) - A North Carolina woman has died following a Saturday night crash in Meigs County.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says Kaila Christian, 24, of North Carolina, was driving a 2015 Chevrolet Cruz west on US 33 when she tried to pass another car and hit an eastbound semi-trailer truck.

Christian’s passenger, 19-year-old Brenton McDonald, was not wearing a safety belt and was ejected from the car.

Troopers say Christian and McDonald were both taken to a hospital, where Christian was pronounced dead.

The Gallipolis Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is handling the ongoing investigation.
