On Thursday, January 3, 2013, there were several people injured in Northern Kentucky car accidents. The first crash occurred when two cars collided at the intersection of Old Ky. 17 and Ky. 17 just after 7:30 a.m. This Fort Wright car accident involved two cars and also included a pedestrian and a third vehicle.
According to police, five people were injured in this multiple-vehicle crash, and one victim was airlifted to University Hospital for medical treatment.
Officers told News 5 that driver Ashley McFarland was traveling on Old Ky. 17 and pulling into traffic when her vehicle was hit by another car. Eddie Rodriguez, the driver of the other car, was traveling with passenger Marlene Sierra, who got out of the car to check on McFarland. Sadly, Sierra was hit by another car while she was outside of the car. No updates on Sierra’s condition have been released so far, and the crash remains under investigation.
Later that night, three people were hospitalized following another Northern Kentucky car crash. This wreck occurred on I-75 at the Donaldson Highway ramp in Erlanger. Police stated that crash took place around 11:00 p.m. on southbound I-75.
Police have not released any information about this accident, what caused the crash, or the names or conditions of the people involved. All that is known is that emergency crews transported three unidentified victims to University of Cincinnati Medical Center for care.
