A woman was flown to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton following a crash at the intersection of Katzenberger and Sebring-Warner Roads around 10:45 p.m. Thursday.

"It sounded like World War II or something going on out here," said Jerry Doff, who lives in the area of the crash.  "There were about six explosions and they just kept going on and on."

Deputies said Linda Davis, of Greenville, was driving eastbound on Katzenberger, and when she approached the intersection of Sebring-Warner she continued driving eastbound through a stop sign and crashed into a guide wire and utility pole.

Davis was taken by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital, where she is listed in good condition.

Neighbors said the intersection where the accident happened seems to be a problem area.  "This is kind of a dead end here, people don't know this highway, they come flying down here and don't get stopped in time," Doff said.  "Next thing you know, they end up hitting that pole there."  Doff said he's wittnessed at least six crashes at the intersection.

Power was knocked out to 2550 Dayton Power and Light customers as a result of the crash.  All of the power to the affected area was restored by 4:10 a.m. Friday.
