COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) - Four kids and one adult were taken to the hospital late Friday following a trio of unrelated crashes on Pippin Road, according to Colerain Township Police Spokesperson Jim Love.

Love said the children seemed to be ok and were taken to the hospital “just for safety.”

One crash was reported just before 8:30 p.m. on Pippin Road near Struble, Colerain Township Fire Department said in a tweet.

The second, which was reported about 45 minutes later, happened in the 7800 block of Pippen Road, the department wrote on Twitter.

Colerain Township Fire Department said Pippin Road is closed in both directions.

It is unclear where the third crash happened on Pippin Road, but police told a FOX19 NOW crew at the scene the three crashes are unrelated.

Ila Hagl says she witnessed the aftermath of one of the crashes.

She told FOX19 NOW she saw two people on the ground outside of one vehicle, a woman underneath another vehicle, and a child who had to be taken away in an ambulance. She added that the child was talking, saying “he was scared.”

Hagl said seven ambulances responded to the crashes.

Love said there is “suspicion” with one car that involves alcohol. The investigation is ongoing, he added.
