MERCER COUNTY, Ohio (WANE) A 19-year-old Celina woman was killed early Sunday when police said she was thrown from a vehicle that had been doing “donuts” in a farm field.
Police and medics were called just before 12:30 a.m. Sunday to a farm field behind 6092 Burkettsville-St. Henry Road. Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey said dispatchers received a call about a woman who fell out of a truck there.
Deputies arrived to find a woman – 19-year-old Alivia M. Nuding of Celina, Ohio – down. She was taken to Mercer Health where she was later pronounced dead.
Grey said his investigators learned that a pickup truck was doing “donuts” in the farm field when Nuding was thrown out. Grey said she was sitting on the lap of a front seat passenger when she inadvertently opened the passenger door and was thrown out while it was spinning.
Brandon McGillvary, 21, was reportedly driving 2008 Ford Super Duty quad cab with Nuding and two other passengers, Grey said.
The incident remains under investigation.
