        SYMMES TWP. — A 14-year-old boy died at Children's Hospital Medical Center from injuries suffered in a Monday evening crash that also claimed the life of the driver, Hamilton County sheriff's officials said Wednesday.

        Michael D. Elahee of Forest Park died shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday. Two boys were in good condition Wednesday at the hospital, and two girls were treated and released.

        The driver, Dorlene E. Lanpheare, 27, of Milford, mother of two of the children in the car, died in the accident, said the sheriff's spokesman, Steve Barnett.

        Deputies said Ms. Lanpheare was driving a 1994 Pontiac Grand Prix westbound on Interstate 275 near the Montgomery Road overpass at 8:17 p.m. when she apparently lost control of the car. It crossed the median and struck an eastbound 1996 Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck. The truck's driver was treated at Bethesda North Hospital and released. He was wearing a seatbelt.

        Ms. Lanpheare, who was four months pregnant, and two of the children were not wearing seat belts. The accident remains under investigation.
