CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Impairment and excessive speed appear to be factors in a serious injury crash that hospitalized two men Tuesday night, Cincinnati police said.

Cincinnati police said their traffic officers responded to a three-vehicle collision in the 4500 block of Paddock Road just before 9 p.m.

A preliminary investigation determined the driver of a 1998 Honda Accord heading north on Paddock Road failed to maintain control of his vehicle and hit a 2016 Chevrolet Malibu, police wrote in a prepared statement.

The Honda drove off the right side of the road and hit a utility pole and fire hydrant, they said.

Then, the car ran back onto the road, crossed the center line and hit a parked, unattended 2002 Chevrolet Astro Van.

The driver of the Honda, Andrew Lee Walker, 32, was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

He is listed in stable condition.

Walker was not wearing his seatbelt, according to police.

His passenger, Brandon Sherfield 32, was taken to the hospital, where he is listed in serious condition.

He also was not wearing a seatbelt, police said.

The driver of the Chevrolet and his passenger, wore their seatbelts and were not hurt.

The Cincinnati Police Traffic Unit is still investigating this crash.

Any witnesses are asked to contact traffic police: 513-352-2514.
