Hillsboro man in ‘serious condition’ after Friday wreck


A Hillsboro man was listed in serious condition Monday afternoon after he and two others were injured in a two-vehicle crash Friday on SR 134 in Clinton County, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

James Fenner, 23, of Hillsboro, was flown via Careflight to Miami Valley Hospital Friday after the wreck, and was listed in serious condition Monday afternoon at the hospital.

From the other vehicle, Lacy Morris, 33, of Wilmington, and a 4-year-old male passenger were transported by life squad to Clinton Memorial Hospital. Lacy Morris was treated and released; information on the juvenile was not available.

Fenner, driving a 1998 Jeep Wrangler Sahara, went left of center in a curve and his vehicle struck a Ford F-150 pickup truck operated by Morris, according to the OSHP.

Fenner is cited with traveling left of center.

He was not using a seat belt; Morris was using a safety belt and her passenger was in a child safety seat, stated the patrol.

The crash occurred about 12:21 p.m. Friday.

Elsewhere, four people hospitalized after a separate Friday car wreck on U.S. Route 62 south of Hillsboro were released from the hospital, according to the OSHP.

An OSHP dispatcher told The Times-Gazette Monday that Abigaile Williamson of Sardinia, driving a white Kia Spectra sedan with passenger Dannielle Tabor, pulled out of a private driveway onto U.S. 62, and the vehicle was struck by a northbound black Saturn Ion driven by Chase Carraher of Hillsboro with passenger James Loftin inside.

Williamson was transported to Highland District Hospital, Tabor was taken to Clermont Mercy Hospital, and Carraher and Loftin were both taken to Mercy Health Mt. Orab. Carraher and Loftin are both juveniles, according to the dispatcher.

The wreck is still being investigated, the dispatcher said, and possible charges are pending for both drivers.
