CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A four-year-old boy is dead after a crash on the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge late Saturday night.

Geanna Mitchell, 43, was driving a Ford Explorer SUV northbound on the bridge with two child passengers ages nine and four. Mitchell, who police said was under the influence, lost control of the SUV around 10 p.m..

Geanna Mitchell drove across the center line, hit an oncoming minivan and flipped the SUV. Four year old Logan Mitchell was trapped inside and freed by a witness to the crash, police said. He was taken to Cincinnati's Children's Medical where he died from his injuries.

The nine year old girl was able to free herself from the SUV and Geanna Mitchell was ejected, according to police. Both were treated for minor injuries. The driver of the minivan was transported to the hospital and has been released.

The SUV driven by Geanna Mitchell was stolen, according to court documents. Terria Mitchell, the owner of the SUV, told police Geanna stole her keys and drove to Kentucky without permission.

Records Geanna Mitchell was driving with a suspended license. She is charged with two counts of Aggravated Vehicular Homicide and Theft. 

Neighbors told FOX19 Logan Mitchell always played with the kids in the courtyard of his apartment complex and that he loved to ride his bike.

"He was a nice, little, fun, sweet boy," said Meika Johnson, a resident of the apartment complex.
