The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office was called to 13424 Dayton Pike at 5:28 p.m. on a vehicle crash. When the Deputies arrived on the scene they found two vehicles had been involved. The white Jeep traveling south bound on Dayton Pike was making a left turn onto McCallie Ferry Rd. The Silver Ford Explorer was traveling north bound on Dayton Pike and according to witnesses, they both had the green light. At this time the investigation shows that the Ford Explorer traveling north bound hit the Jeep when she attempted to make the turn onto McCallie Ferry Rd. from Dayton Pike.

The Jeep was being operated by a white female and had two small children ages two years and nine months as passengers. The preliminary investigation shows that both children had been restrained in child restraint seats. The two year old child was found not breathing and Deputy Gene Myers performed CPR. The children were airlifted to T.C. Thompson Hospital by Life Force and are listed in critical condition. The female driver of the white Jeep was transported by EMS and is listed in critical condition.

The driver of the Ford Explorer was transported by EMS to Erlanger with serious injuries.
