OXFORD TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Oxford Township police are investigating an accident that left two dead and one in the hospital Thursday afternoon.


Dispatch say they received the call at around 1:03 p.m. for a rollover accident on Todd Road at State Route 27.

According to Oxford Township police, upon arrival a 2013 Nissan was found cut in half.  One female and one male were found deceased at the scene. They were identified by police as 20-year-old Amanda H. Durham and 18-year-old Douglas Minton, of West College Corner, Ind.

Officials say a third female was transported to an Oxford area hospital by EMS with unknown injuries. She was identified as Cherish Bolt,18, of Liberty, Ind. 

Police say that Bolt was identified as the driver. Charges are pending for Bolt once all the information and investigation is completed by the Butler County Traffic Crash unit, and Oxford Township Police.

"They had too much speed. They came up over the hill, the driver lost control, went off the right side of the roadway, hit a small culvert and impacted a telephone pole, at which time the car cut in half,” said Oxford Township Police Chief Michael Goins.

Speed is a factor in the crash but alcohol or drugs are not, officials said.

"The roads are generally in good condition. People do tend to drive pretty fast. They underestimate these little hills out here,” said Diana Phillips, who lives near the accident scene.

The Butler County Sheriff's crash team responded to he scene along with the Butler County Coroner's office.

Oxford Township Police Chief Michael Goins says the township trustees are working to curb those speeding problems on roads all over the township.

"I know the trustees are working on extra signage to try to help with the traffic flow and speed,” said Goins.

The accident remains under investigation.
