A 71-year-old Virginia man was killed and two others critically injured Tuesday evening in a crash involving two SUVs that shut down a portion of U.S. 68 for four hours in Xenia Twp.

James Dominy of Chesterfield, Va., was making a right turn around 6:20 p.m. onto U.S. 68 from Brush Row Road when his Honda CR-V was struck by a Chevrolet Blazer, driven by 24-year-old Carl Lindsley of Beavercreek, that was headed north on U.S. 68, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Xenia Post.

The impact forced the CR-V off the right side of the roadway before it reentered and struck the Blazer again before coming to rest. The Blazer overturned onto its side following the second impact.
