A day after a four-vehicle accident on Interstate 75, 28-year-old Cesere C. Taylor of Hamilton died while receiving treatment in a hospital. The Ohio State Highway Patrol disclosed she succumbed to her injuries on Monday afternoon, January 25th.
The crash the victim was involved in happened on Sunday, January 24th. The state highway patrol said Cesere was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Serenthia Taylor, 53, of Hamilton. The driver passed away on the way to Miami Valley Hospital.
In a press release, the investigators said three of the involved vehicles were stationary on the side of the I-75 South. It is near Benchwood Road in Butler Township, Montgomery County. The state highway patrol disclosed that a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro and Serenthia's 2020 Nissan Versa were waiting for a tow.
The two vehicles parked behind an abandoned 2002 Saturn. A 2012 Chrysler traveled onto the right shoulder and struck the Nissan in the rear. The impact caused the Nissan to strike the Camaro, which hit the Saturn.
Two other people suffered injuries that the investigators said were non-life-threatening. The release indicated that alcohol or drugs are not factors in the accident on Interstate 75. The investigation remains ongoing.
The Vandalia Fire and EMS, Riverside EMS, Tipp City Fire and EMS, and Vidalia Police Department assisted OSHP at the crash scene. The Butler Township Police Department and Ohio Department of Transportation also helped.
After the investigation, the state highway patrol can recommend criminal charges to the District Attorney's Office. The deceased victim's family can sue for wrongful death, while survivors can bring a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver.
The victims or their reps will receive compensation for the loss suffered. A competent Ohio car accident attorney can help with this.
