GERMAN TWP., Ohio (WDTN) — A child and three adults are dead after a two vehicle crash on SR-4 in German Township near Eby Road Friday afternoon.

German Township Police Chief Joseph Andzik confirmed that 23-month-old Andrew Johnson died Tuesday at Dayton Children’s Hospital.

Another child hurt in the crash was taken to Dayton Children’s Hospital and was last listed as in critical condition.

Police said that a man was taken to the hospital as well. His condition is currently unknown.

The Montgomery County Coroner has identified the others victims as 61-year-old Rebecca Roberts, her daughter 31-year-old Katie Roberts and 26-year-old Ashley Mance. All of the victims were from German Township.

Both cars had three people inside at the time of the crash. Witnesses told authorities that a third vehicle may have been involved in the crash but it left the scene.

“We don’t think they actually contacted any cars, but they were part of the actual crash, and if anyone has any information about that vehicle, or its driver, we would like to speak with them,” Police Chief Joseph Andcik said.

The initial investigation found that one of the vehicles ran off the road, overcorrected and crashed into a van driving south on SR-4. Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be a factor.

Police said on Facebook Tuesday that a driver seen on a Ring camera video was tracked down, but after further investigation they were no longer considered a person of interest.

German Township Police said they are still looking for a black or dark colored vehicle.

Anyone with information regarding this crash is asked to contact German Township Police at 937-964-9105, 937-855-7215 or by stopping by the department.

This is a developing story and will update as new information becomes available.
