DEFIANCE — The Defiance Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a Sunday single-vehicle accident that claimed the life of a Defiance woman.

The post reported Deanna L. Miller, 43, was westbound on Watson Road east of State Route 15 in Highland Township, when the vehicle went off the south side of the roadway. The vehicle went into a ditch, struck a driveway access, rolled multiple times and came to rest on its side.

It was reported Miller was not wearing a safety belt at the time of the crash, and was ejected from the vehicle. Miller was transported to Mercy Hospital by Defiance EMS, where she was pronounced deceased.

Troopers were assisted by the Defiance County Sheriff’s Office and Highland Township Fire Department.
