Wheeling Police Department spokesman Philip Stahl says officers received a report on the initial crash around 6:30 a.m. Thursday.

He says the first driver told police he thought he hit someone, but officers couldn't find a body. The department then received another call around 15 minutes later about a body being dragged by a separate vehicle on an interstate exit ramp nearly 5 miles away.

The woman's name has not yet been released.

Police are still investigating.
