15-year-old killed in crash between car, RTA bus identified

TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) – The 15-year-old killed when a car fled a traffic stop Sunday afternoon, slammed into an RTA bus, and burst into flames has been identified.

The Montgomery County Coroner said Tuesday Mya'nie Nabors, 15, was killed in the crash.

The Coroner said Nabors was identified through dental records and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Trotwood Police are still working to piece together information leading up to the crash at the intersection of Free Pike and OH-49.

Officials say that officers did not chase the car through city streets when it took off from the traffic stop.

Right now, Trotwood Police are trying to compile all the available videos so they can review the footage and connect the dots. That video will then be reviewed by city attorneys before it can be released.

Police say three people were in the car at the time of the collision. Two have died, including 18-year-old Kyren Wright.

Dayton Public Schools officials say that Kyren Wright previously withdrew from high school and that none of the other individuals were enrolled at DPS.

Police continue to speak with the families of the victims.

The RTA bus driver and five bus passengers were hospitalized but are expected to recover.

RTA confirmed with 2 NEWS that there was a camera inside the bus, and the intersection was equipped with a red-light camera, but police have not released either video.

RTA investigators say after viewing the video, they feel confident that there is nothing the operator could have done to prevent the crash. The bus was three-quarters of the way into the intersection and the light was still green when the car slammed into the back third of the bus at a high rate of speed.
