Young Woman Dies in I-80 Car Accident in Warren County

Posted on: May 25, 2017

Peiran Chi, a 20-year-old woman who was a passenger in a Mercedes Benz, died on Monday in a collision with another car in the westbound lanes of Interstate 80. Chi was a rear passenger in the Mercedes, among two other occupants—the driver and a front passenger—both of whom suffered minor injuries. An initial report said that the Mercedes spun out of control, hit a guardrail, flipped over and struck several trees off the highway. The Mercedes had apparently caught fire, but the driver and front passenger escaped before the fire ignited. Chi was thrown out of the Mercedes after the crash with the Mitsubishi, and was pronounced dead at the scene
