Preliminary investigation indicated that Soraya Rivadeneira, 49, of Troy, was traveling north on Ohio 589 driving a 2012 Nissan Versa approaching Middleton-Hume Road. Also traveling north on Route 589 was a 2001 Ford F-250, driven by Devlin Allen, 19, of Sidney.

The Nissan turned right onto Middleton-Hume Road and then veered back to the left onto Route 589 to perform a U-turn. This put the Nissan in the path of the truck, which struck it in the driver’s door.

The collision carried both vehicles on Route 589 north of the intersection.

The sheriff’s office also was assisted at the scene by Perry-Port-Salem Twp. Rescue Squad, Fletcher Fire Department and the Shelby County Coroner’s Office.
