HIRAM TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- A Hiram woman died when her car went off the road and crashed in Portage County Sunday night, highway patrol says.

Rebecca Brownlee, 23, was headed south on Pope Road, just north of Winchell Road, at about 9:15 p.m., when her car went off the east side of the road.

Her car struck a tree, flipped and landed on its roof, state troopers said.

Brownlee was trapped in her car until rescue crews could use machinery to cut her free.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Brownlee was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.
