CINCINNATI (WXIX) -One person is dead and three others are injured after a crash that happened in downtown Cincinnati Sunday morning.

Police say that Adams Sands, 45, died after a crash happened on 100 E. 8th Street around 2:30 a.m.

Sands was driving a 2020 Polaris Slingshot south on Walnut Street when he hit a 2019 Ford Fusion traveling east on E. 8th Street, officers said.

Officers say Sands was taken to UC Medical Center, where he later died. The driver of the Ford Fusion, 34-year-old Robert L. Davis, was taken to UC Medical Center and is in serious condition.

Officers say two other passengers of the Slingshot Polaris, 42-year-old Bradley Odegaard and 37-year-old Carrie B. Smith, were also taken to UC Medical Center and are also in serious condition.

Davis was not wearing a seatbelt, police said.

Excessive speed appears to be a factor, police said.

It is unclear if impairment played a factor in the crash.

Witnesses are asked to contact the Cincinnati Police Department’s Traffic Unit at 513-352-2514.
