PITTSFIELD TWP. — The Ohio Highway Patrol has identified Sandra Linden, 55, of Norwalk as the woman who was killed in a five-vehicle crash on state Route 20 today.

Rescue squads were called to the scene, just west of Quarry Road, about 8 a.m.

Five vehicles were involved — a Nash Finch Co. food hauling semi truck, a tan Ford pickup truck, a yellow Volkswagen Beetle, a tan Ford passenger car and a gray minivan.

According to Sgt. Cross with the Highway Patrol, Linden, who was driving the gray minivan, went left of center, into the path of the semi. The semi attempted to swerve and struck the other three vehicles.

The semi then burst into flames and was fully engulfed when Wellington fire crews arrived on the scene, according to Wellington fire Lt. Bill Brown.
