LEBANON – Troopers from the Lebanon Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol are asking for assistance from the public to help solve a head-on injury crash they say was caused by a hit-skip driver.

At approximately 6 p.m. Monday Cassidy Hill, 23, of Fort Thomas, Kentucky, was southbound on US 42 at Old State Route 122 in Warren County. Fred D. Prewitt, 53, and passenger Tammy Prewitt, 53, both of Wilmington, were northbound on US 42 approaching the intersection.

A white Ford Ranger driven by an unknown white male pulled out from the stop sign on Old SR 122 and struck the Hill vehicle on the right rear, according to troopers, then the Hill vehicle lost control and went left of center and struck the Prewitt vehicle head-on.

The white Ford Ranger fled the scene eastbound on Middletown Road without checking for injuries from the Hill or Prewitt vehicles, according to the OSHP. Fred and Tammy Prewitt were transported to Miami Valley Hospital with serious injuries. Cassidy Hill was transported to Atrium Hospital with serious injuries.

The white Ford Ranger was described as clean with damage to the front and right front of the vehicle, troopers said. Anyone with information on the white Ford Ranger that could have possibly been involved in this crash is asked to call the Lebanon Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol at 513-932-4444.

The Patrol was assisted by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office, Wayne Township Fire and EMS and Massie Township Fire Department.
