CENTERVILLE —Centerville police say a crash at Interstate 675 southbound at Wilmington Pike Sunday killed one person and injured five.

The crash, which occurred at 3:40 a.m., involved a Ford SUV with six people inside, according to Officer John Davis, spokesman for Centerville Police Department.

“It hit the guardrail several times,” Davis told Dayton Daily News. “We haven’t determined yet whether or not they hit the bridge wall. We’re not sure.”

Everyone was taken to the hospital, he said. An unidentified 29-year-old man in the crash died at the scene. An unidentified 17-year-old girl sustained life-threatening injuries and remained in an area hospital’s intensive care unit Monday afternoon, Davis said.

Four occupants of the vehicle had non-life threatening injuries and were discharged from care Sunday, he said.

The crash shut down I-675 for several hours as police worked on crash reconstruction. The road reopened around 9:40 a.m., according to police.

There’s no word yet what caused the crash, which remains under investigation, Davis said.
