A 58-year-old Fort Wayne woman died following a traffic crash Saturday along an Ohio road, according to a news release.

Ohio State Highway Patrol officers said Michelle Y. Wyatt-Wheeler was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Aveo east on Ohio Route 2 in Hicksville Township when the vehicle went off the road around 1 p.m.

Wyatt-Wheeler's vehicle hit a ditch and later rammed into a unoccupied grain truck that was parked. She was flown to a local hospital in Fort Wayne, but died from her injuries, police said.

The incident remains under investigation.
