“Just prior to the crash, the city of Riverside and the city of Dayton received a call of a wrong-way driver, within 10 to 15 seconds later, the city of Riverside got a second call about the crash here on Route 4 at Harshman,” Hess said.

On scene, Riverside police determined that a Sedan was the vehicle involved in both calls.

The other driver was transported to Miami Valley Hospital with serious injuries but is expected to be okay.
