2-year-old, adult killed in 3-vehicle crash near Trenton
BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio (FOX19) - A 2-year-old and an adult were killed in a three-vehicle crash Friday afternoon, according to Butler County dispatch.
Dispatch said the accident happened on Trenton Oxford and Jacksonburg Road around 2:40 p.m.
The accident involved two vehicles and a semi.
The intersection where it happened is said to be dangerous. People who live near it said they are tired of seeing people die there.
“That’s what makes it so sad. It being a toddler makes it worse but you won’t want to see anyone lose their life," said Ruby Wright, who lives in Trenton.
He said he’s been living in Butler County for more than 40 years and has seen many accidents and fatalities.
“We have tried to get something done ever since the 80s. We’ve tried to get something done about the intersection. At the time, my kids were in school and we were worried the school bus would get hit," Wright said.
A letter from the Ohio Department of Transportation said they’re building a roundabout at the intersection to better serve the needs of the public.
“Finally they’re doing it. It’s taking a while but they’re doing it. I guess,” Wright said.
ODOT said construction on the roundabout will begin in the summer of 2020.
Dispatch said victims were transported to area hospitals, including Atrium Medical Center, Fort Hamilton Hughes and Children’s Medical Center Liberty Campus.
One victim is listed in critical condition.
No other details were immediately available.
