Tiffin, Ohio — The Tiffin community is rallying support for the family of a recent Calvert High School graduate who was killed in a vehicle crash Sunday evening.

18-year-old Mya S. Lunguy, of Findlay, was driving a cream 2008 Volkswagen Beetle northbound on I-75, when she drove off the right side of the road and struck a bridge abutment, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Lunguy suffered fatal injuries from the crash and was transported from the scene by Hanco EMS, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

A GoFundMe fundraiser has been established to assist the Lunguy family with funeral expenses, and as of Tuesday afternoon, over $10,000 has been raised.

“Mya had just graduated from high school and was set to start college. She was a dear friend to many, and this smart and talented young lady brought smiles and lifted spirits wherever she was,” the GoFundMe page states.

Lunguy was wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash, and at this time it is unknown what caused her to drive off the roadway.

Calvert Catholic Schools will be hosting a prayer service for Mya on Wednesday, June 9 at 8 a.m. in the Calvert High School gym. All are welcome to attend the prayer service.

Assisting on scene were the Findlay Police Department, Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, Findlay Fire Department, Hanco EMS, and Dick’s Towing.

The crash remains under investigation by the Findlay Highway Patrol Post.
