CINCINNATI (FOX19) -- One person is dead after a car accident on Reading Road early Sunday morning.

Around 3:00am, police say 25-year-old Deondre English was traveling north on Reading Road when he lost control of his car and crossed into the southbound lanes. English's car was then hit by an on-coming SUV driven by 34-year-old Quincy Russia.

18-year-old Marie Mauldin was transported to University hospital where she died. She was a passenger in English's car.

Investigators say alcohol and speed may be factors of the crash and English now faces charges of vehicular homicide after a test revealed his blood-alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit.

English was in court on Monday, where his bond was set at $100,000.

Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call the Cincinnati Traffic unit at 513-352-2514.
