BATAVIA, Ohio (WXIX) - A woman and an infant are dead after a crash in Clermont County Sunday evening.

It happened shortly before 4:44 p.m. on OH-222 south of Elklick Road in Batavia Township, according to Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Juan Jimenez, of West Chester, was driving south on OH-222 in a 2007 Honda Civic when he “failed to negotiate a turn,” an OSP release reads.

Jimenez traveled across the center, hitting a 2020 Ford Fusion driven by Batavia resident Meagan Wilson.

Maria Rodriguez and an infant, both passengers in Jimenez’s car, were pronounced dead at the scene, OSP says.

EMS transported another passenger in the same car, Reginaldo Jimenez, to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center with serious injuries.

Jimenez, the driver, was transported to Anderson Mercy Hospital. OSP describes his injuries as non-life threatening.

Wilson had minor injuries. She was taken to Clermont Mercy Hospital.

OSP’s Batavia post is investigating.
