MIDDLETOWN — The Middletown man killed this week in a wrong-way crash died of multiple traumatic injuries and his death was ruled an accident, according to new information released today by the Butler County Coroner’s Office.
The coroner’s office released its autopsy results today.
Alex Johnson, 30, was driving a Pontiac G6 east — the wrong way — on Verity Parkway at 5:30 p.m. Monday when he apparently lost control of his car and hit a Dodge Avenger near Eldora Drive.
The driver of the other car, Michael Lidstone, 45, of Franklin, was transported to Miami Valley Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Johnson was pronounced died at the scene by the Butler County Coroner’s Office, according to the patrol. He was speeding in the 35 mph zone, but his speed hasn’t been determined, the post said.
Middletown Police Chief Rodney Muterspaw said the investigation is being handled by the state patrol, but said that Middletown police officers were not chasing Johnson.

— Former New York mayor and major Trump supporter Rudy Giuliani is joining President Donald Trump’s legal team, according to news reports.
Giuliani, one of the first and one of the staunchest supporters of Trump’s presidential bid, will be assisting Trump’s legal team with the Russia investigation, according to CNN.
Trump is said to be extremely upset with the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller and has called it a “witch hunt” on numerous occasions.
Trump’s personal attorney, Jay Sekulow, confirmed the addition of Giuliani to the team and also announced two former prosecutors, Marty Raskin and Jane Serene Raskin, are joining the team, as well, CNN reported.
The move follows an FBI raid on the home, office, and a hotel room of longtime Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen last week and the revelation that Cohen is under criminal investigation.
Deputy Assistant Attorney Gen. Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the Mueller investigation, signed off on the Cohen search warrant.

ROCK HILL, S.C. — A family from New York driving home from a trip to Disney World is desperate to find their little girl's teddy bear, and think it may have been lost in the Charlotte area.
The family was driving along Interstate 77 in Rock Hill on April 13 when they think the stuffed animal fell out the window.
The girl’s mother, Amy Earley, said in a Facebook post that the bear means the world to her. That post has been shared hundreds of times and has dozens of comments.
Earley said her 3-year-old daughter has never gone a day without the bear and is completely heartbroken.
The family went on a Disney vacation in Orlando, and in photographs from the trip, the little girl is seen holding the bear everywhere the family went.
The family stopped in Rock Hill on the way home and stayed at a Comfort Suites. They think the bear may have fallen out the window of their car on I-77 northbound, between the hotel and exit 30 in Davidson.
Earley is pleading for help and has offered a $500 reward.
