Cincinnati, OH (December 25, 2020) – Three people were injured, with two suffering from serious injuries, following a two-vehicle collision in the Cincinnati area on Thursday, December 24.
Local sources revealed that the crash occurred at around 6:55 a.m. that morning in the 4400 block of Glenway Avenue. According to initial reports, a 2007 Honda Odyssey operated by 39-year-old Sherry Smith was traveling westbound on the roadway when she crossed the centerline and collided with a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier.
A passenger in Smith’s vehicle, 30-year-old Demaris Walker, was hospitalized following the crash. The driver of the Chevrolet, 58-year-old Gladys Hutcheon, was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center in serious condition. Hutcheon’s passenger, 65-year-old Gail Duncan, was also transported to the same hospital with serious injuries.
Excessive speed and impairment are believed to have been factors in the crash. An ongoing investigation into the accident is currently underway.
Our thoughts are with Gladys Hutcheon, Gail Duncan, Demaris Walker, and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
