Two people are dead as a result of a multi-vehicle crash in Clearcreek Township, Ohio on Tuesday.

Details of the Clearcreek Accident

According to FOX-19, the accident occurred around 2 pm when the driver of a red 2005 Hyundai, identified as Jacqueline Montgomery, ran a stop sign at the intersection of Township Line Road and State Route 73 and collided with a flat-bed lumber truck.

The force from the impact caused the truck to veer across the median, colliding head-on with a minivan traveling in the opposite direction. Both of the occupants of the minivan, Robert and Margaret Large, both 66, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Montgomery was airlifted to Miami Valley Hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the truck escaped with minor injuries.

Ohio State Patrol is reviewing security footage as they investigate the incident – it is unclear whether charges will be brought against Montgomery.
