The accident caused the highway to shut down in both directions for more than four hours.
Of the two male occupants in the Suburban, the driver, Greg Pilot of Blanchester, suffered “serious visible injuries” and the passenger, Roger Warwick, also of Blanchester, suffered “moderate” injuries, Nutt said. Piloy was taken to Atrium Medical Center in Middletown and was then flown to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, according to Nutt.
The two females occupants of the Sienna, Dorothy Edgerton and daughter Chloe, were not injured.
The Butler County coroner responded to the scene and the accident remains under investigation. Deputies interviewed one witness, but could not determine the cause of the crash, Nutt said.
“We don’t really know the cause. I don’t want to even speculate on what the reason was, it could’ve been a lot of things,” Nutt said.
