The Butler County serious traffic accident reconstruction team was fast on the scene responding to a Wayne Township crash on the morning of October 1. According to the Butler County Sheriff's Office, the two-vehicle crash happened within the 5400 block on Jacksonburg Road and occurred at approximately 11:30 in the morning.
The first driver, a 35-year-old man behind the wheel of a 2011 Hyundai, was traveling northbound on Jacksonburg Road. The Hyundai drive struck the passenger-side door of a Dodge Durango. The Hyundai driver passed at the scene and first responders pronounced him dead.
Authorities, at this time, have not released the name of the driver, or any indicator of their identity. It is unclear why Butler County is not releasing what information they have, however, authorities will often do this when attempting to locate the family or while the crash is still under investigator. This crash is still under investigation, however investigators have stated that they believe speed is a relevant factor in the crash.
The driver of the Dodge Durango also sustained injuries, but is expected to survive. They took the Dodge driver to Atrium Medical Center, where they confirmed the injuries were non-life threatening. It’s likely that the driver will remain at the medical center until the family can accommodate their needs for care at home.
There has been no information regarding fault or who may have started the crash. It is clear that the Hyundai driver struck the Dodge Durango on the passenger-side door. But it’s unclear who had the right of way. The Butler County Sheriff acknowledged that the department had their thoughts with the victim’s family. Butler County is a short drive outside of Cincy and many commute from Cutler County into the city or frequently visit the area.
