OSP: Weather is a factor in crash that hurt 5

WILLIAMSBURG, OH (FOX19) - Weather is a factor in a crash that injured five people and sent multiple medical helicopters to Clermont County Tuesday night, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Three AirCare units were called to State Route 32 near Dela Palma Road in Williamsburg about 7 p.m.

Three people were flown to University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Two more were taken by ambulance to local hospitals. 

Their identities and conditions will be released Wednesday, patrol officials said.

The driver of a Chevrolet Monte Carlo went off the side of the road, corrected and went left of center, according to the patrol.

An oncoming sport utility vehicle hit the Monte Carlo with an impact so great, the vehicles ended up facing the opposite direction in which they were initially traveling.

State troopers are still investigating what led that driver to run off the side of the road, but one said he believes weather conditions are a reason.

“The weather, I'm sure, is a factor, a contributing factor," said Sgt. Charles Jordan. "You can see that there's snow. These roads, the way these roads are designed, there's not a whole lot of room for a mistake. If you drop off the edge, there's not a whole lot of room for you to make an error and correction.” 

Lt. Wayne Price, commander of the Clermont County post, said more information might be available later Wednesday.
