One person is dead and another is in serious condition after an accident on Thursday night shut down Kellogg Avenue just outside of Coney Island.
A motorcycle and car collided around 10:02 p.m. at the intersection of Kellogg Avenue and Sutton Road.
Police say a 2002 Dodge Durango operated by Andrew Karrick, 19, of Ft. Thomas, Kentucky was stopped eastbound on Kellogg Avenue at the intersection to Sutton Road, waiting to make a left turn. As Karrick proceeded to turn left onto Sutton Road a motorcycle traveling in the opposite direction on Kellogg Avenue had entered into the intersection, which resulted in an angular collision. The operator and passenger were thrown from the motorcycle upon impacting Karrick's vehicle.
The driver of the motorcycle, who's name has not been released, sustained fatal injuries as a result of the collision and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.
Authorities say the passenger from the motorcycle was transported to the UC Medical Center by the Anderson Township Fire Department, where their condition was listed as serious. The name of the passenger is also being withheld.
Karrick did not sustain any reported injuries.
Police say the driver and passenger from the motorcycle were not wearing helmets at the time of the crash.
Police are doing a toxicology report to determine whether alcohol and/or drugs were a factor with the operator of the motorcycle. Alcohol and/or drugs were not a factor with Karrick.
The crash is under investigation by the Hamilton County Traffic Safety Unit.
