CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A woman has died in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 71 on Thursday morning.

It happened just before 3 a.m. near the Stewart Road exit.

According to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, a Mazda 626 operated by Chelsie Owens, 23, of Oxford, was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes.

As she continued to travel in the wrong direction, her vehicle side swiped a 2003 Ford Focus driven by John Dolcini III, 52, of Maineville. After striking the Focus, Owens' vehicle entered the center lane and was then struck by a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta driven by Michael Thompson, 56, of Cincinnati. After this collision, debris struck a fourth vehicle, a 2014 Mazda cx5, which was operated by Daniel Maggard, 27, of Norwood, who was traveling behind the Jetta.

Owens sustained fatal injuries in this crash and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Dolcini was also injured, but refused transport to the hospital. Thompson was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center and is in stable condition. Maggard was not hurt.

Police say alcohol and/or drugs are believed to be factors in this crash. All participants in this crash were wearing their safety restraint devices at the time of this crash. 

The crash shut down northbound I-71 for about three hours.

The crash remains under investigation.

According to Owens' Facebook page, she was a 2009 graduate of Talawanda High School and was an employee at the Walmart in Mason.
