Cleveland, OH - At 2:44AM on Oct. 24, 2008, a one-car crash was reported to Westlake PD. A 2008 Nissan 4 door driven by 21-year-old Jordan Gonzalez of Westlake hit a traffic signal pole at the northeast corner of Canterbury and Detroit Rds.

Gonzalez was transported to Fairview General Hospital where she later died. Alcohol use appears to have been a factor. Gonzalez was not wearing a seatbelt; the driver's airbag did deploy. She was alone in the car.

Gonzalez had been in Cleveland earlier and was brought home to her Windsong Ct. residence by friends. She became combative and while the friends were trying to awaken a parent, she entered her Nissan and drove off. The friends went to look for her and discovered the crash.

The investigation is continuing. The Cuyahoga County Coroner will rule on the cause of death.
