BATAVIA, Ohio - Five people were hurt in a four-vehicle crash in Batavia Tuesday afternoon.

The crash happened around 1 p.m. at the intersection of Ohio SR 32 and Bauer Road.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol initially reported that someone was deceased, but later corrected their report and said that five people were injured and no one was killed.

The preliminary investigation indicates that a 2005 Honda Civic was traveling eastbound on SR 32 approaching a red traffic light, when the driver was struck from behind by a 1997 Ford F-350.

Both vehicles continued through the intersection striking a 1999 Nissan Altima and a Stonelick Township ambulance that were traveling northbound on Bauer Road across SR 32.

The driver of the Honda Civic was Joseph Pope, 21, of Fayetteville, Ohio. Pope and a female passenger were transported to Clermont Mercy Hospital for minor injuries.

The driver of the Ford truck was David Zimmer, 52, of Georgetown, Ohio. Zimmer declined treatment at the scene and has been cited as a result of the crash.

The driver of the Nissan was Morgan Fisler, 19, of Batavia, Ohio and was not injured in the crash.

The three occupants in the ambulance, all employed by Stonelick Township Fire Department, were transported to Clermont Mercy Hospital by Central Joint EMS.

The crash remains under investigation.
