HANOVER TOWNSHIP, Ohio — A person was killed Tuesday night in a crash on Hamilton-Richmond Road in Hanover Township, according to the Butler County Sheriff’s Office.

The three-vehicle crash happened around 6 p.m. in the 2900 block of Hamilton-Richmond Road. Police said a 2004 Chevrolet Impala was traveling north on the road and traveled left of center, striking a 2004 Toyota Prius head on. The Impala then flipped after it was struck by a 2014 Toyota Tundra.

Two people were flown by medical helicopter to Miami Valley Hospital. One has died, according to BCSO Sgt. Kim Peters.

The sheriff's office later identified the victim as 22-year-old Kyle Andrew Johnson of Cincinnati.

“It’s always tragic to lose a life at such a young age. Our condolences to the family of the victim,” said Sheriff Richard Jones in a news release.

The BCSO's investigation is ongoing.
