MILFORD - A 21-year-old pregnant woman was killed and two others were slightly injured following a crash Thursday along Interstate 275 in this northwestern Clermont County community.

Kathleen Rocklin, of Milford, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her fetus also died. Officials said Rocklin was not wearing a seatbelt.

The two-vehicle crash occurred about 10:30 p.m. along southbound I-275.

Investigators with the Ohio State Highway Patrol said the accident occurred when the pickup truck Rocklin was riding in was struck from behind.

The driver of the truck, Andrew Grote, 28, of Loveland, lost control and the truck overturned in the median of I-275.

Authorities said the car, driven by Tiffany Peterson, 28, of Fairfield, went off the left side of the road and struck a concrete wall.

Both Grote and Peterson were wearing seatbelts.

Miami Township and Tri-Health Professional Transport emergency1 personnel took Grote and Peterson to Bethesda North Hospital, where they were treated and released.

Lt. Paul Hermes, who commands the Batavia post of the highway patrol, said Friday that the crash is still being investigated.

Charges have not been filed, he said.
