CLERMONT COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - Two women were seriously hurt in a single-vehicle crash in Batavia Tuesday night, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Troopers say a Ford F-150 driven by Laura Srofe of Mt. Orab was traveling east on State Route 32 around 7:30 pm.

Srofe took the exit to Half Acre Road and went through the intersection at the top of the ramp at a high rate of speed, OSP says.

The pickup went off the right side of Half Acre Road, went airborne, landed at the bottom of an embankment, and continued through some brush before stopping in a parking lot near the new Purina Pet Food plant, troopers wrote in a news release.

UC Air Care flew the Srofe and her passenger, Deborah Pratt of Winchester from the crash scene to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, according to OSP.

Troopers say Pratt has life-threatening injuries and Srofe’s injuries are described as serious.

State troopers say their preliminary investigation determined both women were not wearing seatbelts.
