Kent State University Student Killed In Traffic Crash – Family Files Wrongful Death

The family of a 19-year-old Kent State student killed when her car was struck by a cargo van on March 21 has filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Delaware against the driver of the van and his employer.

According to the Ohio Highway Patrol, the driver of a Dara Toy Company 2006 Chevrolet Express cargo van became distracted while reaching for his cell phone charger and lost control of his vehicle. The van crossed the highway median, all three southbound lanes and the rest area exit ramp before hitting the 2001 Pontiac Grand Am driven by Carli Woodruff as she was leaving the rest area.

Woodruff, a native of Loveland and an intervention specialist major, died at Grant Medical Center in Columbus.
