UNITY TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN) – A woman from East Palestine was killed in a one-vehicle crash Friday in Unity Township.

The accident happened about 4:45 p.m. on State Route 170, south of Jimtown Road.

According to troopers, 33-year-old Ashley Pallotta was driving north when she lost control of the Mazda Protege she was driving, went off the right side of the road, hit a guardrail and went into a ravine.

The car hit a tree and culvert before coming to rest in the ravine.

Pallotta was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Troopers say Pallotta was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and that drugs appear to be a possible factor.

The crash is under investigation.
