CAMPBELL COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

Bond was set at $500,000 Tuesday for the suspect charged with a deadly rear-end crash on the Combs-Hehl Bridge.

Cory Lippmeier, 35, is held at the Hamilton County jail on aggravated vehicular homicide charges.

Cincinnati police say Lippmeier rear-ended Scott Petredis’ Pontiac Grand Am in the eastbound lanes near Kellogg Avenue Sunday night.

The Combs-Hehl bridge links Ohio and Kentucky over the river along Interstate 275. 

Petredis, 41, died as a result of injuries from the crash, according to police.

Excessive speed and impairment are believed to be a factors in the collision, they have said.

Lippmeier, who drove a Dodge Caliber, suffered serious injuries and was treated at University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Both drivers wore seat belts, police said.

The Traffic Unit is continuing the investigation.

Witnesses to this crash are asked to contact the Cincinnati Police Department’s Traffic Unit at 513-352-2514.
