UPDATE: Woman killed in I-70 wrong-way crash in Clark County identified

The preliminary investigation shows Lakins was driving a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix and was driving the wrong way down the ramp from SR 41 onto I-70 Eastbound, when she crashed head-on with a semi. Milo Hatfield, 53, of Indianapolis was driving the semi. Investigators say the crash sent Hatfield's semi and Lakins' Grand Prix into the median, Hatfield kept driving through the median hitting guide wires and eventually going into the westbound lanes of the highway.

Lt. Brian Aller of the Springfield Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said there’s no indication the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol from the scene. But a coroner’s report will be needed to make that determination.

Wrong-way crashes like this are hard to prevent, he said.

“Other than signage, I’m not really sure what else we can do,” Aller said. “It was literally a matter of seconds.”
