SHARONVILLE, OH (FOX19) -

Alcohol and speed are believed to be factors in an Interstate 75 crash that killed a 26-year-old early Friday morning, Evendale police confirmed.

The fatal two-vehicle crash was reported near the 14.6 milepost at approximately 2:20 a.m.

Multiple witnesses told police a 2005 Chrysler 300 was traveling at a high rate of speed and struck the driver's side of a 2008 Toyota Sienna. 

Following the collision, the Chrysler drove off the left side of the roadway and overturned several times.

The driver, identified as Brianna Nelson, was ejected as the vehicle rolled over, police said.  She was not wearing a seat belt at the time.

Nelson, of Mason, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Toyota, identified as 56-year-old James Miller of Erlanger, KY, was not injured in the crash.

Lanes on southbound and northbound I-75 reopened just after 6 a.m. 

Investigators at the scene of the fatal crash said they had to close the southbound lanes so they can get out there and measure the vehicle's skid marks and other details to learn what led up to it.

“We have to recreate the event to learn exactly what happened,” Sgt. McKinney said. “By shutting the highway down, it allows us full access to the scene. It’s unfortunate for motorists, but it’s something we want to be thorough about.”

The crash remains under investigation.
