Drivers charged in fatal crashes




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Two motorists were arrested Wednesday and charged with vehicular manslaughter in separate fatal crashes.

        Mona Rushing, 51, of the 3400 block of Fernside Place, Evanston, was charged in the death of her 5-year-old granddaughter, Kiara Lattimore, who was killed in crash on Nov. 18, 2000, police said.

        Ms. Rushing, with her granddaughter as a passenger, drove onto the Interstate 75 south ramp from Galbraith Road and drove left out of the ramp into a safety zone and rear-ended a disabled vehicle, police said.

        Judith Burnett, 55, of E. Lakeshore, Reading, was charged in the death of pedestrian Lois Kindley, of Madisonville.

        Police say Ms. Burnett was driving south on Stewart Road in Madisonville and turning onto east Madison Road on Jan. 10 when she failed to yield to Ms. Kindley, who was in the crosswalk.
