CINCINNATI -- One person is in critical condition after a crash Tuesday evening in South Fairmount.

The crash happened at about 5:45 p.m. in the 1800 block of Westwood Avenue.

Police said 28-year-old Christina Jackson was heading south on Quebec Avenue and disregarded a stoplight at the Westwood Avenue intersection.

Jackson’s SUV continued through the intersection and hit a car driven by 25-year-old Alexander Sanin.

Officers said the crash forced the car off the roadway and into a building.

Firefighters said they had to cut Sanin and his passengers, 32-year-old Jurji Sanin, from the vehicle. They were taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Jurji Sanin was not wearing a seatbelt and suffered life-threatening injuries. Police said he is in critical condition.

Alexander Sanin was also not wearing his seatbelt and suffered minor injuries. He is listed in stable condition.

Jackson was not injured in the crash.

Police said speed and impairment do not appear to be factors in the crash.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Cincinnati Police Department’s Traffic Unit at 513-352-2514.
