A Tuesday night accident has left one man dead and another in the hospital. The two-vehicle crash took place in south Clermont County at about 8 p.m. on September 29th. The two cars were traveling along Route 756 and 743 near Washington Township. Ohio highway patrol released some preliminary information from the investigation.
They acknowledged that Dakota Hulbert of nearby Batavia was driving a 2014 Dodge Avenger. Ohio Highway Patrol has released that 27-year-old Hulbert was traveling southeast along route 756 when it was hit in an intersection. At the intersection of Route 756 and 743, a GMC Sierra was also crossing and collided with Hulbert. The driver of the GMC was 32-year-old, Bryan Brock. Brock was from Moscow and was traveling southwest down State Route 743.
Hulbert experienced severe injuries during the crash, and first responders sent him to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. He later died in the medical center. A passenger in Hulbert’s vehicle, Robert Brewer Jr., was also injured and taken to UC Medical Center. He sustained serious injuries, and there have been no updates regarding his injuries or medical stability. It is unknown exactly where the two vehicles collided and if there was any relevance in the point of impact with the differences in injuries between the two victims.
Brock did not sustain any injuries and refused medical treatment. It is unclear at this time which driver had the right-of-way. Ohio Highway Patrol hasn’t made reports regarding traffic violations. However, they have acknowledged that the investigation is ongoing. This uncontrolled intersection has caused trouble in the past for Washington Township. It’s not uncommon for these types of accidents in rural areas, but Washington Township is not too far outside of Cincinnati. Most people are well-acquainted with the area and travel through it often.
