Impairment is a factor in a crash that seriously hurt two drivers in Spring Grove Village late Sunday, including one in critical condition, Cincinnati said.

Officers and the Traffic Unit responded to a report of an accident with injuries in the 5300 block of Este Avenue at 10:15 p.m.

They found two male drivers suffering from injuries.

One, 66, was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, police said in a prepared statement.

The other, Deontre Gaulden, 29, was seriously hurt and hospitalized in serious condition.

A preliminary investigation found the 66-year-old driver pulled onto Este Avenue and failed to yield the right-of way, striking Gaulden's northbound 2013 Nissan Maxima, police said.

Neither driver wore a seatbelt, according to police.

Excessive speed is not a factor.

The Traffic Unit is continuing to investigate. Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact them at 513-352-2514.
