Local News

CASSTOWN, Ohio (Miami Valley Today/WDTN) — A man and a women were transported aboard CareFlight following a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of LeFevre and Hufford Roads on Saturday afternoon.

Harold Harris, 91, and Patricia Harris, 84, were airlifted, having both suffered serious injuries. Patricia would later succumb to her injuries, dying at the hospital.

First Responders from Casstown Fire Department, Elizabeth Township and New Carlisle medic units, along with Miami County Sheriff’s Deputies received the call around 5 p.m.

A pickup truck and a car operated by the Harris’ were involved in the crash, which sent the pickup into a yard and the car into a cornfield.

The driver of the pickup was not injured in the accident.

Sgt. Randy Slusher of the Miami County Sheriff’s Office said that it appears that pickup truck “was believed to be going eastbound on LeFevre Road when a smaller red vehicle was going southbound on Hufford Road.”

Slusher said that it is not yet clear if the car failed to stop or if it stopped and then pulled into the path of the pickup truck. The pickup then “t-boned” the car.

A crash reconstruction team from the Miami County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the scene to complete the crash investigation.
