3 adults, 18-month-old hospitalized after crash in Batavia


BATAVIA, Ohio — Multiple people, including an 18-month-old, were hospitalized after a head-on collision in Batavia Monday afternoon.

Crews have blocked off Old State Route 32 near Pleasant Acres Drive after a crash involving two cars. Natalie Laycock, a resident driving near the crash, said a woman was driving a silver Nissan westbound while a man drove a red Mazda eastbound. Ohio State Highway Patrol said the Mazda traveled into the other lane, hitting the Nissan. The Mazda then traveled off the road and hit a mailbox and utility pole.

Witnesses at the scene said the Mazda was heavily damaged. The driver was taken to Clermont Mercy Hospital with minor injuries, while a 31-year-old passenger was airlifted to UC Medical Center with what is considered “life-threatening” injuries. Laycock said the passenger’s head had hit the windshield and he was bleeding. OSHP said he was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The woman driving the Nissan also wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, OSHP said. She was airlifted to UC Medical Center with serious injuries. The 18-month-old in her car had minor injuries, but was taken to Cincinnati Children’s.

OSHP is investigating the crash.
