CINCINNATI - A woman is facing charges after colliding with a motorcycle carrying two people on I-71 Wednesday night.
The crash happened around 10 p.m. at the 3.5 mile marker on northbound I-71.
Cincinnati police say 57-year-old Gina Whited was driving a 2008 Subaru Forrester northbound on I-71 and failed to maintain assured clear distance ahead and struck a 1998 Harley Davidson motorcycle, also traveling northbound, operated by 25-year-old Jesse Malone with a passenger, 27-year-old Sherry Sublett.
Sublett was not wearing a helmet and sustained serious injuries. She remains in critical condition at University Hospital.
Malone was also not wearing a helmet and sustained serious injuries, but is in stable condition after also being transported to University Hospital.
Police say Whited was under the influence of drugs at the time of the accident and her license was already suspended from a previous OVI. Whited was also charged with aggravated vehicular assault and transported to the Hamilton County Justice Center. She was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured.
Whited will appear in court at 9 a.m. Friday morning for her arraignment.
The crash remains under investigation and any witnesses to the crash are asked to call the Cincinnati Police Department's Traffic Unit at 513-352-2514.

The U.S. Naval Academy on Wednesday charged three football players with sexually assaulting a female midshipman at an off-campus house in Annapolis more than a year ago, a case that has brought renewed focus to how the nation's military academies handle reports of sexual assaults.
