HILLSBORO, Ohio - A third person involved in a two-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon in Hillsboro has died.
The crash happened around 2:25 p.m. on US 62 near milepost 13.
Police say 85-year-old Mildred L. Tumbleson, of Hillsboro, Ohio, was driving an Oldsmobile Cutlass northbound on US 62 when she drove left of center and struck a southbound Toyota Camry driven by 74-year-old Rosemary Barnhart, also of Hillsboro.
Tumbleson was fatally injured as a result of the crash and pronounced dead at the scene by the Highland County coroner. A passenger in Tumbleson's car, 91-year-old Velma M. West, also of Hillsboro, was also fatally injured.
Barnhart was transported to University Hospital, where she later died as a result of her injuries.
Witnesses to the crash say Tumbleson's vehicle was weaving from side to side before going left of center.
Neither alcohol nor drugs are suspected in the crash, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol. The investigation into the crash also showed that all parties involved were wearing seatbelts.
"The Troopers at the Wilmington Post remain vigilant in their efforts to reduce traffic-related fatalities," Lieutenant Aaron L. Gentry, Commander of the Wilmington Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said. "We strongly encourage motorists to drive safely and use their seatbelt."
