A Warren County corrections officer critically injured last week in a one-vehicle crash on Ohio 123 near Settlemire Road has died, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Ciera Greene, 23, of Bowersville, was pronounced dead Saturday at Miami Valley Hospital Saturday, said Lt. Matt Hamilton, commander of the patrol's Lebanon post.

Greene was on her way home from work when she ran off the right side of the road in her blue Chevy Cobalt about midnight, he said.

She "steered hard" to try to get back on the road, but over-corrected and careened across the left side of the road, where she ran off into a ditch and a utility pole, he said.

Although she had her seatbelt on, she still suffered life-threatening injuries. She was transported by ambulance to Bethesda North Hospital and then airlifted to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton.

"Ciera continued to touch a lot of lives by being an organ donor," reads her obituary, released by the sheriff's office.

Troopers are not sure why her vehicle ran off the road and concede they may never know. 

Speed, alcohol and drugs are not factors. The speed limit in the area is 55 mph, Hamilton said.

"There were no witnesses to indicate a deer in the roadway," he said. "It could be something as simple as she drifted off the side of the road."

Greene joined the sheriff's office in February 2013 and dreamed of becoming a deputy, sheriff's officials said. She was attending the police academy at Greene County's Criminal Justice Academy.

"Ciera's smile and twinkle in her eyes will be greatly missed. She was fun loving and full of life," her obituary reads. "She was passionate about making a difference. She was an avid runner and loved playing basketball. Her pets Tater and Theo will miss her immensely."

Green is survived by her parents, Dale and Lorraine Greene; brother Brandon Greene; grandparents Sue Greene, Jack and Anna Moore; aunts, uncles and cousins and "special friend," Steve Back.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Barbara Flora, Bernard Blake, and Jerry Greene.

Visitation is 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at Shawnee Hills Baptist Church in Jamestown, church officials said. 

Her funeral is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Child Advocacy Center of Warren County, 100 Campus Loop Road, Franklin, Ohio 45005.
