CINCINNATI — Several people, including a child, were seriously injured in a crash Tuesday morning on U.S. 50 at Kilby Road.

According to a statement from the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to the two-vehicle crash just before 5 a.m. in Whitewater Township.

The statement said said a 16-year-old girl, with two passengers, was driving eastbound on U.S. 50 at Kilby Road and tried to make a left turn when she was hit by a 25-year-old woman driving westbound.

The 25-year-old mother was driving with her three children. The sheriff's office said a child born in 2021 suffered serious injuries. A 2-year-old and 3-year-old, along with their mother, suffered minor injuries.

The 16-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy, one of her passengers, suffered serious injuries. Her 18-year-old passenger suffered minor injuries. None of them were wearing seat belts, the release said.

The 15-year-old was flown to a local hospital, the release said. Police said all other crash victims were taken to the hospital by paramedics.

The crash closed U.S. 50 at four different locations and traffic was detoured to State Route 128 to I-74/I-275, but it has since reopened.
