UPDATE (April 17, 2023, at 9:40 a.m.): The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office has identified a woman killed in a single-vehicle crash on Sunday.

According to the KCSO, Elizabeth A. O’Leary, 19, of Nitro, was pronounced dead at the scene of a crash at a home in Nitro. Deputies say the crash happened shortly after 1 p.m., Sunday, April 16, when the vehicle, a Hyundai Elantra, began rolling down a steep driveway.

Deputies say they determined through the investigation that O’Leary had been partially inside the vehicle when it began rolling. The KCSO says it appeared she had been holding the steering wheel, which they say could have caused the vehicle to turn toward the side of the hill.

According to deputies, O’Leary was killed when she was pinned as the vehicle struck a tree. They say the vehicle then continued over the hillside where it overturned.

The KCSO says the vehicle began rolling because the transmission was in “Drive” without a parking brake set.
