MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (WDTN) – A woman is dead following a 2-vehicle crash on Sunday night.
It happened around 7:51 p.m. in Middletown.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol says 52-year-old Tonya R. Miller from Middletown died when her Honda Accord crossed the median on Roosevelt Boulevard and was struck by another vehicle.
The Hamilton Post of the OSP says Miller was going westbound on Roosevelt when she lost control of her car, crossed a grassy median and spun into the eastbound lane.
A GMC Envoy driven by Cecilia M. Kakaris was traveling in the other direction and struck Miller’s car.
A preliminary investigation shows Miller was traveling at a high rate of speed when she lost control of her car.
Miller was not wearing her seat belt, and was ejected from her car during the crash. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Ms. Kakaris was taken to Atrium Hospital with minor injuries.
Speed and failure to wear a seat belt appears to be a contributing factor in the crash. Neither alcohol nor drugs are suspected.
Middletown Police Department, Middletown Fire and EMS, and Butler County Coroner’s Office assisted on scene.
The incident remains under investigation by the OSP.
