Teen driver hurt badly in crash

        GOSHEN TOWNSHIP — A 16-year-old girl was seriously hurt and four other people were injured in a three-vehicle crash here Tuesday afternoon.

        Brandy Miller of Goshen Township was taken by medical helicopter to University Hospital. She was in serious condition, and a nursing supervisor said the girl's injuries were not life-threatening.

        The Clermont County Sheriff's Office said she was thought to have suffered a broken pelvis.

        The crash occurred at 4:55 p.m. on Ohio 132 at Shiloh Road. The girl was driving a white 1990 Dodge Caravan eastbound on Shiloh when she failed to stop at a stop sign, said Trooper Scott Kuntz of the Ohio State Highway Patrol's Batavia Post.

        Her vehicle was struck in the driver's-side door by a Ford Club Wagon driven by Donald Mortenson, 37, of Pleasant Plain. He was uninjured.

        The Club Wagon, which was southbound on Ohio 132, had 10 occupants, many of whom were teens, Trooper Kuntz said. Four people from that vehicle were transported to Bethesda North Hospital. Their names and conditions were not available Tuesday evening.

        The impact of the crash pushed the Caravan into a green 2000 Ford F-250 truck driven by Donald Burns, 61, of Middletown. Neither he nor his passenger were injured, Trooper Kuntz said.

        At the time of the crash, the weather was sunny and clear, he said, and it was unknown what may have caused the girl to fail to stop.

        The crash remains under investigation.
