CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A 6-year-old boy and a woman were injured in a Boone County crash Friday morning, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

Deputies were sent to the scene in the 10200 block of Dixie Highway a little after 8 a.m.

They say a car driven by Holly Eversole, 27, crossed left of the center line and struck a car driven by Hailey Stewart, 27.

Stewart’s children, 6-year-old Gabriel Vazquez and 4-year-old Liam Vazquez, were both in the car, deputies say.

Gabriel was taken by helicopter to Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati with life-threatening injuries, the sheriff’s office news release says.

Eversole sustained serious but not life-threatening injuries and was flown to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, deputies report.

Deputies say Liam Vazquez sustained minor injuries and was being treated at Children’s Hospital.

Officials say the collision remains under investigation by the Boone County Accident Reconstruction Unit.

At this time, deputies say impairment can’t be ruled out as a contributing factor to the collision.
