Woman killed after pickup crashed into wall in Dayton ID’d

A Harrison Twp. woman died last week after a pickup truck reportedly ran a red light and crashed into an overpass wall in Dayton.

The crash victim was identified as 58-year-old Jacquelyn Williams by Montgomery County Coroner Dr. Kent Harshbarger.

Williams was driving a 2019 Ford Ranger around 2:45 p.m. Sept. 17 west on Lakeside Drive when she apparently did not stop at a red light at Gettysburg Avenue. The pickup then drove off the west side of the road and hit a raised curb and an overpass wall, according to a Dayton Police Department crash report.

The pickup was reportedly traveling at high speed when it crashed, but the report did not indicate how fast it was going.

Dayton Fire Department medics took Williams to Miami Valley Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

The crash remains under investigation.
