The crash happened when a brown Chevrolet Blazer was traveling east on Free Pike when the driver ran a red light and hit a red Ford Focus, driven by Oliver, traveling north on N. Gettysburg Ave, according to a crash report. The impact sent the Ford into two vehicles that were waiting at the traffic light to continue west on Free Pike.

The drivers of the two additional vehicles hit were also transported to Miami Valley Hospital with suspected minor injuries.

Police said the Chevrolet Blazer stopped on Free Pike, but the driver did not stay on scene.

On Thursday, Dayton Police Sgt. Gordon Cairns said detectives from the Traffic Service Unit believed they have the suspect identified. It’s unknown if that person is in custody at this time.
