WASHINGTON TWP, CLINTON CO, OH (FOX19) - A 12-year-old boy died Tuesday morning when the car his grandmother was driving went through a stop sign on a road in Clinton County.

The Ohio State Patrol says Clayton McKibben was a passenger in a Buick Century driven by 70-year-old Joyce McKibben that went southbound from Farmer's Road into the path of a car eastbound on State Route 350.

Her car was hit by the eastbound car, driven by Ricky Merrell of Englewood, OH, which is in the Dayton area.  Merrell's car was dragged to the south where it hit a third car.

Joyce McKibben was seriously injured and flown to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton.  Merrell had non-life-threatening injuries.  The man driving the third car was not hurt.
