Teens seriously hurt in Warren County crash
WARREN COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - Hamilton Township police say they are investigating a serious injury crash that hospitalized two teenagers, a 16-year-old driver and her 14-year-old brother.
It happened on US 22/3 and Turning Leaf Way about 7 a.m. Monday, Police Chief Scott Hughes said in a news release.
US 22/3 was closed for nearly three hours while police investigated and reconstructed the two-vehicle crash.
A preliminary investigation indicates that a 2008 Honda Civic, driven by 16-year old Rebekah Hohmann of Hamilton Township, was turning left from Turning Leaf Way onto US 22/3 when a 2006 Honda Pilot traveling westbound on US 22/3 struck her, according to the police news release.
Rebekah and her 14-year old brother - who was a front-seat passenger in the Civic – were transported by Hamilton Township Fire Rescue to the University of Cincinnati West Chester Hospital.
Their conditions are currently unknown.
Medical helicopters were put on standby at the time of the crash based on initial reports, but it was determined they were not needed, police said.
Both teens are students in the Little Miami School District.
The driver of the Honda Pilot, 25-year-old James German of Hamilton Township, was not hurt, police said.
