WAPAKONETA A single-vehicle crash killed a Wapakoneta girl Thursday afternoon on state Route 501.

Emily Ann Saam, 17, was driving a 2000 Dodge Durango southbound just north of Linzee Road when her vehicle drifted off the east side of the roadway and struck a tree, according to the Wapakoneta Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The impact damaged Saam's vehicle and caused a small fire. Saam was pronounced dead at the scene by Auglaize County Coroner Dr. Thomas Freytag and taken to Bayliff and Eley Funeral home in Wapakoneta.

Alcohol was not believed to be a factor, according to the Highway Patrol, and the crash remained under investigation Thursday night.
