A fatal automobile crash occurred on U.S. 50, just west of Ohio 128, Whitewater Township, at 10:52 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26, according to Chief Deputy Sean D. Donovan, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.

A 1996 Toyota Camry, driven by Eliza Brown, 25, of Cincinnati, made an illegal left turn onto U.S. 50 from the south driveway of Kroger, he said. The Camry was struck by a 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt, driven by Heather Lewis, 21, Harrison, which was traveling eastbound on U.S. 50 towards Ohio 128.

The first collision caused the Camry to travel left-of-center into the opposing lanes of U.S. 50, where it was struck by a 1993 Ford work truck, driven by Philip Zang, 63,  Cincinnati, who was traveling westbound. The truck collided into the Camry’s passenger-side door.

Rebecca Haines, 57, North Bend, passenger in the Camry was transported to University Hospital by AirCare. She was pronounced dead at University Hospital at 11:52 a.m. as a result of fatal injuries sustained in the crash. Brown was taken to University Hospital by the Miami Township Fire Department for treatment of injuries. Brown is listed in stable condition. Lewis and Zang were not injured.

Alcohol and/or drugs do not appear to be a factor, and all motorists involved were wearing seat belts. The crash remains under investigation by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Safety Unit.
