The Cincinnati Enquirer

A Mount Washington man was killed Wednesday in a two-car crash on Eastern Avenue in the East End.

Killed was James Robinson, 42, who was a passenger in a vehicle operated by Otis G. Rasner Jr., 30, of Mount Washington. Mr. Rasner's vehicle was struck head-on by a vehicle driven by Johnny L. Shea, 18, of the East End. Mr. Shea's vehicle crossed the center line while traveling east.

Mr. Shea and Mr. Rasner were taken to University Hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries.

No charges have been filed. All occupants were wearing seat belts and alcohol was not a factor, Cincinnati police said.

Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call the Traffic Unit at 352-2514 or Crime Stoppers at 352-3040.

Eastern Avenue was closed for about three hours after the 12:23 p.m. accident.
