        COLERAIN TOWNSHIP — A 57-year-old woman and a 9-year-old boy were hospitalized Thursday following a multivehicle accident on Bluerock Road.

        The crash occurred shortly after 5 p.m. at the intersection of Bluerock and Cheviot roads when a 1995 Oldsmobile driven by Carole Senior, 28, of Evanston failed to yield when exiting a driveway.

        Ms. Senior's vehicle struck a northbound 1996 Buick driven by Laverne Lightfield, 57, of Colerain Township, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

        The collision caused Ms. Lightfield to lose control of her car, which flipped onto its left side and struck a utility pole.

        Ms. Senior's vehicle continued on and struck a 1992 Toyota Corolla driven by Dewi Dean, 39, of Bright, Ind.

        Ms. Lightfield had to be extricated from her car and was transported via Air Care to University Hospital, where she was listed in serious condition.

        Also hospitalized was 9-year-old John A. Senior of Evanston, a passenger in Ms. Senior's vehicle. He was transported to Children's Hospital, where he was treated and released.

        Neither Mr. Dean nor Ms. Senior was injured.

        Alcohol was not a factor in the crash and all parties were wearing their seat belts, police said. The accident is being investigated by the traffic safety section.
