Eliza Brown, 25, was arrested and charged by Hamilton County sheriff's deputies with one count of vehicular manslaughter Wednesday, Nov. 26, in connection with the death of Rebecca Haines, 57, North Bend, said Chief Deputy Sean D. Donovan.
Brown was involved in a fatal automotive crash on U.S. 50, just west of Ohio 128, Whitewater Township, Wednesday, Oct. 26.
Brown illegally turned an eastbound Camry left onto U.S. 50 from the south driveway of Kroger, Ohio 128, and was struck by a Cobalt being driven eastbound on U.S. 50 by Heather Lewis, 21, Harrison, said police.
The first collision forced the Camry left-of-center into the opposing lanes of U.S. 50, where it was struck by a westbound Ford truck, driven by Phillip Zang, 63, Cincinnati.
Zang's truck struck the passenger-side door of the Camry. Haines, a passenger in the Camry, was transported to University Hospital, Cincinnati, by AirCare. She was pronounced dead at 11:52 a.m.
Brown was taken to University Hospital by the Miami Township Fire Department.
