One person is dead and three were hurt when two vehicles crashed, sending one careening into a house overnight, Cincinnati fire officials said.

"I would call it a spectacular crash just because of the nature of it," said Cincinnati police Lt. Chris Ruehmer, the night chief.

Crews responded to the 5700 block of Glenway Avenue about 10:30 p.m. Thursday for a report of a traffic accident with a person trapped, fire officials said.

A 2008 Toyota Tundra pickup truck speeding west on Glenway Avenue lost control, changed lanes and hit a 2004 Jaguar XJ that also was speeding, police said in a prepared statement. 

Both vehicles ran off the road.

The pickup truck rolled several times, ejecting and critically injuring the driver, Brian Griffin, 40, who was not wearing his seat belt, according to police.

The Jaguar went airborne, flipped and crashed into the front wall of a house, overturning inside, they said.

The driver, who also was not wearing his seat belt, died at the scene. His name was not released pending notification of next of kin.

Two elderly women were asleep inside the home at the time of the crash, officials said.  

Hildegarde Froehlich, 84, and Eleanor Froelich, 94, were hit by debris and buried under bricks and structural components of the home, fire officials said.

They were rescued by fire crews and taken to the hospital in serious but stable condition.

Griffin also was taken to the hospital and listed in serious condition.

Impairment and speed are factors in the crash, which remains under investigation, police said.
