BATH TOWNSHIP — A Lima woman died Tuesday night after she was injured in a car accident earlier in the day.

Vicki McGhee, 23, died at 3:55 p.m. Tuesday.

McGhee was originally taken to Lima Memorial Health System with serious injuries, the Allen County Sheriff’s Office said.

McGhee was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Malibu east on state Route 81 near Fetter Road just after 5:30 a.m., the Sheriff’s Office said. McGhee drove off the left side of the road and overcorrected, swerving back onto the road and then driving off the right side of the road.

McGhee’s vehicle struck and wrapped around a utility pole, the Sheriff’s Office said. Bath Township Fire and Rescue Department responded to the scene and extricated McGhee from the vehicle.

The Sheriff’s Office had not determined a cause of the accident by Tuesday night and an officer said it remained under investigation.
