3 hurt in crash on Xenia U.S. 35 Business Route

Sgt. Jim Slusher, Ohio Highway Patrol post at Xenia, said a mother and child in an SUV were taken to Dayton Children’s Hospital and the driver of a Pontiac G6 was taken to Greene Memorial Hospital.

None of the injuries was believed to be life threatening, he said, but the injury to the Pontiac driver was believed to be significant.

Slusher said the preliminary investigation shows the SUV, headed west on the business route, turned left to get onto the entrance ramp to the eastbound U.S. 35 Bypass and failed to yield to the oncoming Pontiac.

The collision shut down the business route for approximately 90 minutes.

The investigation is incomplete, he said, because there are some interviews that are pending.


At least one person has been taken to a hospital from a two-vehicle accident on U.S. 35 East near the split heading into the city.

The highway has been shut down because of the accident, but the bypass remains open, according to a Greene County sheriff’s dispatcher.

One of the vehicles was reported to have ended up in a ditch, with a woman inside who suffered a broken arm.

There has been no word on whether there are any other victims. The accident was reported just after 6:30 p.m.

We will update this developing report as information becomes available.
