CINCINNATI - One person is dead after a fiery crash in O’Bryonville early Friday morning.
William Fox, 32, was driving a 1999 Ford F-250 when he crashed into a utility pole in the 2100 block of Madison Road at about 2 a.m. Officials say after Fox hit the utility pole, the vehicle overturned, then struck another utility pole. The truck then caught fire and was engulfed in flames, according to officials.
