Woman dies in Belmont County crash

Belmont County

A woman was pronounced dead at the scene late Wednesday night after a crash in Belmont County according to the state highway patrol in Ohio.

Troopers say, Michael Paul, age 39 of Martins Ferry, was driving a 2008 BMW 335 when he traveled off the left side of the roadway and overturned while traveling west on CR 4.

The highway patrol says Paul sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was transported by Barton EMS to Wheeling Medical Park.

The passenger, Bethany Paul, age 34, died at the scene.

Troopers believe that alcohol is a factor in the crash.

No charges have currently been filed and the crash remains under investigation.

Colerain FD and Barton FD assisted on the call

(Editors note: the crash happened late Wednesday night, not Tuesday night. A firefighter from Barton said they transported the patient, not Cumberland Trail, according to troopers at the Ohio Highway Patrol)
