The cause of the crash is unknown and under investigation, but there is no evidence to indicate that alcohol played a part, Charles said.
Police are still investigating a fatal bus crash involving an RTA bus that veered off the roadway and smashed into two vehicles parked on a driveway on June 8 that claimed the life of the driver, Neal Booher, 39, of Dayton.

Kettering police say Booher veered off the road for an unknown reason. Two passengers in the bus were transported to the hospital, and the extent of their injuries were non-life threatening and the investigation is still ongoing.
Since 2013, the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority has paid more than $1.2 million out-of-pocket for accident, injury and property damage claims filed by bus riders, motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, property owners and others, according to agency documents.
During that time period, about 1,967 people submitted claims that allege they were injured or had their property damaged because of the Greater Dayton RTA, the data show.
Police also are seeking witnesses to help them determine what caused a fatal car crash on East Stroop Road in late June.
What is known to investigators so far is that 50-year-old Rebecca Gustin of Centerville crashed into a tree June 23 while driving erratically and possibly speeding. The impact of the crash caused her vehicle to erupt into flames.
Sgt. Larry Warren said Gustin’s car appeared to have been in another crash in a parking lot on East Dorothy Lane prior to the crash on East Stroop Road.
“We are actively attempting to find any further witnesses/home surveillance cameras, or any other information that would be pertinent to the fatal crash,” the Kettering Police Department posted on its Facebook page.
Police want residents with any information regarding these accidents to call dispatch at 937-296-2555 and ask for officer Jesika Shriver-Kelch or officer John Youngs.
