Two drivers were killed in a wrong-way, three-vehicle crash early Sunday on Interstate 75.

The crash victims were identified Monday as Darnell Hill, 38, and Joshua Davis, 33, both of Dayton by the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Dayton Post.

Hill was driving a 2006 Cadillac DTS south in the northbound lanes of I-75 in Butler Twp., near Needmore Road when the Cadillac struck the 2010 Kia Forte driven by Davis head-on, according to the patrol.

The impact forced the Cadillac to then struck a 2017 Nissan Altima driven by David Wickline, 49, of Troy, causing minor damage.

Hill and Davis were pronounced dead at the scene, and Wickline was not injured.

Troopers were assisted by the Harrison Twp. Fire Department, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Vandalia Police Department, Ohio Department of Transportation and the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.

The crash remains under investigation.
