Local police are investigating several deadly accidents within the last 24 hours. When merging on to us 50, 18-year-old Charles Hundley Junior of Delhi left the right side of the ramp, spinning into a 360 and hitting the retaining wall twice on West Sixth street around 2:30 Saturday morning. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Cincinnati police believe alcohol may have been a factor.
Alcohol could also be to blame in a Korthern Kentucky accident. 42-year-old Brenda Hickman was killed on KY Rt. 8 around midnight, in Pendleton County. Investigators say she missed a curve in the road and hit a tree head on.
In Batavia, the Ohio State Highway patrol believes a medical condition caused 57-year-old Charles Ellis to crash into a basketball pole and a house. Investigators believe he died from that condition, rather than injuries suffered in the accident.
