MORAINE, Ohio (FOX19) - A Michigan man has been identified as the driver of a semi that crashed into a car killing a boy, his mother, and grandmother.

The Moraine Police Department says Todd Bowling, 40, of Croswell, was driving a 2017 Freightliner north on I-75 Friday night when he hit a 2008 Ford Fusion head-on.

According to the Dayton Daily News, Bowling told police he “started to cough and blacked out” and didn’t remember anything else about the crash, according to a witness statement.

The Montgomery County Coroner says Betty Davis, 57, Amanda Kidwell, 36, and Braden Jennings, 6, all of Middletown, died as a result of the crash.

8-year-old Adriana Sanchez, who was also in the car, was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. She remains in critical condition.

Bowling was treated and released from the hospital Friday night.

He is not in police custody at this time.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to contact Sgt. Parish at the Moraine Police Department at 937-535-1152.
