One man was killed and two others were injured Saturday night in a three-vehicle accident.
The accident happened on U.S. 25 and Totten Lane in Boone County before 9:30 p.m., the Boone County Sheriff’s Office posted on its Facebook page.
Maxwell Detzel, 22, of Fort Thomas was northbound on U.S. 25 in a 1995 Chevrolet Camaro and failed to negotiate a curve in the road, according to the sheriff’s office. Detzel’s vehicle crossed over into the southbound lane and collided with a 2007 Dodge Magnum driven by Ernest Wright, 39, of Cincinnati.
Detzel’s Camaro continued in the wrong traffic lane on U.S. 25 and collided with a 2000 Honda Civic driven by Joshua Ray, 26, of Fort Mitchell, according to the sheriff’s office.
Ray died at the scene. Detzel and Wright were taken to University Medical Center in Cincinnati with critical injuries.
None of the drivers were wearing seat belts, and alcohol and speed are suspected as factors in the crash. The accident was under investigation, and no charges had been filed.
