Tests don't explain cause of Ohio I-75 wrong-way crash

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) - A northwest Ohio coroner says a wrong-way driver killed in a head-on interstate crash didn't have alcohol or drugs in her system at the time of the collision, which also killed three sorority sisters.

Authorities say 69-year-old Winifred Lein was driving south along northbound Interstate 75 in March when she crashed into a car of Bowling Green State University sorority members headed to the Detroit airport for a spring break trip.

Christina Goyett, 19, of Bay City was among those killed in the crash.

The Wood County coroner tells The Blade in Toledo (http://bit.ly/Mr2xxW ) toxicology tests don't explain why Lein was driving the wrong way. Her body contained an appropriate level of medication for a seizure disorder, but the coroner doesn't believe she had a seizure while driving.

He says it's possible she simply became confused while traveling in the wee morning hours.
