LEBANON, Ohio — Three people were hospitalized Monday evening after a multi-vehicle hit-skip crash on US 42 in Warren County, troopers said.
According to Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. R.L. Burd, 23-year-old Cassidy Hill, of Fort Thomas, Kentucky, was driving southbound on US 42 near Old State Route 122 around 6 p.m. Monday, approached northbound by 53-year-old Fred Prewitt, of Wilmington.
That’s when an unknown male driver, operating a white Ford Ranger pickup truck, pulled out from a stop sign and struck Hill’s vehicle from behind, Burd said. That collision caused Hill to lose control of her vehicle, and she then hit Prewitt’s vehicle head on.
The white Ford Ranger fled the scene without checking for injuries in either of the other vehicles, Burd said.
Prewitt and his passenger and wife Tammy, also 53, were transported to Miami Valley Hospital with serious injuries. Hill was transported to The Atrium Hospital with serious injuries.
Burd said the pickup truck was described as “clean with damage to the front and front right of the vehicle.”
Troopers are asking anyone with any information on the white Ford Ranger that could have possibly been involved in this crash to call the Lebanon Post of the OSHP, at 513-932-4444.
