Four people are dead after three crashes in Montgomery County that were reported within 24 hours of each other this week.
The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office on Friday identified three of those killed following the two crashes Sunday in Dayton and one early Monday morning in Moraine.
Around 2:34 a.m. Sunday a pedestrian from Amelia was hit while trying to cross Wayne Avenue at East Fifth Street in Dayton. The “don’t walk” signal was on when the man was crossing, according to a Dayton police crash report.
The man’s name was not released Friday because the coroner’s office has not yet been able to reach his family, an investigator said. He was hit by a 2014 Ford Fusion traveling north on Wayne Avenue. He was then hit by a 2019 Chevrolet Equinox attempting to turn onto East Fifth Street, according to the report. The man died after he was taken to Miami Valley Hospital. No other injuries were reported in either of the vehicles.
Dayton police responded later that evening to a deadly crash involving a motorcycle and pickup truck at the intersection of Arcadia Boulevard and South Smithville Road.
Just before 5 p.m., a 2016 Toyota Tundra failed to yield the right of way while turning left on South Smithville Road at Arcadia Boulevard and collided with a Honda motorcycle, according to the crash report.
The motorcyclist, was identified as 35-year-old Jeffrey Adcox of Riverside. He was taken to Miami Valley Hospital, where he died, according to the report.
The driver of the truck was not injured.
Two people were killed and another suffered critical injuries in a crash reported around 12:41 a.m. Monday in Moraine.
A 27-year-old Dayton man, Khusan Mamedov, was driving a 2016 Honda Odyssey south in the 3000 block of Kettering Boulevard when he lost control, causing the minivan to go over the curb on the left side of road and into a tree, according to a crash report.
Mamedov and a 25-year-old Dayton man sitting in the front passenger seat, identified as Alizhan Ibragimov, both died. A second passenger was taken to Kettering Health Main Campus in critical condition.
Impairment is suspected, but Moraine police are continuing to investigate what led to the crash, according to the report.
