Woman dies after I-275 crash

A crash on Interstate-275 at the Stephen Road overpass on Tuesday afternoon left one dead.

Catherine Taske, 84, was traveling southbound when her vehicle veered off the the road and struck a bridge pier supporting the Stephens Road overpass.

Taske was trapped in her 2002 Honda for 30 minutes and had to be mechanically extracted by Whitewater Township fire crews.

She was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center where she died from her wounds shortly after arriving.

According to Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil, speed, alcohol and drugs were not a factor in the crash.

Authorities are still investigating.
