UPDATE @ 4:45 p.m. (June 4):
Moraine police released images today of the type of vehicle wanted in connection with a fatal road rage incident over Memorial Day weekend.
The crash just after 6 p.m. May 24 on southbound Interstate 75 south of Dryden Road led to the death of 35-year-old Osra Young of Trotwood. The mother of four was a passenger who was ejected from a tan Chevrolet Blazer after the driver lost control and flipped, reportedly after the driver of a pickup truck changed lanes and stopped in front of the Blazer.
The pickup is now described as a red Ford truck with crew cab, model year 2013 to 2015, Moraine police said. The pickup was last seen traveling east on Stroop Road into Kettering.
“He knows what he did,” said Antoinette Young, one of the victim’s eight sisters, of the pickup driver. “His vehicle was close enough to see her vehicle flip over.”
The driver is described a heavyset white man in his mid to late 60s with white hair and beard who wears glasses. A passenger is described as a white man in his 50s with a thin build, white hair and neatly cropped beard.
Police said a preliminary investigation indicated the two drivers were cutting each other off while driving northbound.
Young’s family said Osra Young — one of 11 children — and three of her nephews were returning home from the Dayton Mall when the other driver started harassing them. That’s when he allegedly stopped and caused the accident that killed the mother of three boys and a girl. One of young’s nephews, a 23-year-old, also was ejected but was treated for a broken leg and released from a local hospital.
A sisterCija Young, said last month she wants the driver found who was involved in the crash.
“We want justice to be done,” she said.
Another sister, Kierra Burns, said, “there’s a lot of grief … there’s a lot of confusion. There’s a lot of pain.”
Anyone with information about the identity of the driver or passenger is urged to call Moraine police at 937-535-1166.
Moraine police released a picture of the pickup truck they said is a reddish or orange quad cab — possibly a Ford with running rails. Police have asked anyone who recognizes the vehicle or description of the pickup driver to call (937) 535-1166 or Montgomery County Regional Dispatch at (937) 225-4357.
“Please turn yourself in,” Cija Young said. “The longer you wait, the worse it’s going to get on you.”

Osra Young, one of 11 children, was ejected along with her 23 year-old nephew. He suffered a broken leg and has since been released from the hospital.
In the new information we’ve discovered, Young was reportedly driving four people back from a Dayton Mall shopping trip when the crash occurred. The other two passengers had minor injuries.
Moraine Police are looking for the truck and the driver, who, according to police, pulled in front of Young’s car and hit the brakes. The family says the truck driver had already bumped their bumper.

UPDATE @ 5:18 p.m. (May 25):
Police want to talk with the driver of a pickup truck whose driver was “engaged in some kind of road rage activity” with the driver of another vehicle and caused the ejections of two people — one of whom was killed.
“We’d like to identify the driver and get their version of what happened,” Moraine police Sgt. Jon Spencer said Monday. “We do have some witnesses and we’re working some leads.”
Spencer said the preliminary investigation shows that the driver of the pickup truck and the driver of a Chevy Blazer “appeared to be engaged in some kind of road rage activity, cutting each other off as they continued northbound.”
At some point, the man in the pickup changed lanes and came to a sudden stop in front of the Blazer, the sergeant said. The driver of the Blazer lost control, over-corrected and the vehicle flipped — ejecting the driver and his passenger.
The passenger, 35-year-old Osra Young of Trotwood, was killed. The driver of the Blazer, whose name was not available, was taken to a hospital. Spencer said his condition was not known.
Police are looking for the driver of the pickup truck, described as a white male probably in his 60s or 70s, who is heavy set and has a long white beard and white hair.
Spencer said the truck is a quad car, reddish or orange and possibly a Ford with running rails. Moraine police released a photo of the truck. If you recognize the vehicle or the description of the man in the truck, you are asked to call Moraine police at 937-535-1166 or Montgomery County Regional Dispatch at 937-225-4357.
