vehicle and lawn mower crash


Earlier today Hamilton County Emergency Medical Services was dispatched to 118 Reavley Road on an accident involving a lawn mower. After their arrival it was found that the incident also involved a motor vehicle and a lawn mower. The investigation found that John Weaver age 41 was mowing the lawn and as he turned the mower around in the roadway, Frankie Trantham age 72 traveling east bound on Reavley Road in a Chevrolet Trailblazer, struck the mower. Deputies advised the location where the incident occurred was a blind hill at the railroad tracks and Ms. Trantham did not see the mower or Mr. Weaver until contact was made.

Mr. Weaver was transported to Erlanger Medical Center with severe head trauma. The investigation into the crash is on-going and is being handled by Deputy Robert Stockburger.
