CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A tow truck driver was critically injured in a crash in West Price Hill crash Sunday night.

Police said 20-year-old Mahamadou Maiga was driving a 2010 Dodge Challenger southbound in the 4500 block of Rapid Run Pike around 11:50 p.m.

32-year-old Glenn Ewing was working in the roadway, placing a disabled vehicle on the back of his tow truck, when officers say he was struck by Maiga’s car.

According to police, Maiga’s car also hit Ewing’s tow truck and a vehicle that was on the back of the truck.

Ewing sustained life-threatening injuries as a result of the crash and was taken to the University of Cincinnati Hospital Medical Center where he is listed in critical condition.

Maiga suffered minor injuries.

Police said excessive speed has yet to be determined to be a factor in the crash, but impairment does not appear to be a factor.

Tri-State tow companies held a “light up” vigil Monday evening on 5th Street in Queensgate.
