Woman Dies in Crash

A former Youngstown resident, who recently moved to the Solon area, was killed in a crash early Friday morning.

The accident happened around 10:30 a.m. on the I-271 northbound ramp to I-480 westbound in Bedford Heights.

Police said traffic was stopped when Sharella Thomas, 42, rear-ended a tow truck.

The impact sent the tow truck into the two vehicles ahead of him.

Those three drivers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The ramp was closed for two hours.

The crash remains under investigation.
