Update 11/20

One of the three injured victims of an accident on U.S. 421 Monday afternoon has passed away.

According to the Ripley County Sheriff’s Office, 83-year-old Maxine Young, of Osgood, died Tuesday at a Cincinnati hospital.

She was originally transported to Margaret Mary Health following the accident but later transferred to University of Cincinnati Hospital.

“Cause of death is not known at this time and will be determined by the Hamilton County Coroner,” explained Cpl. Rob Bradley with the Ripley County Sheriffs Office.

The other injured occupants, including a minor in Young’s vehicle and the driver of the semi were reportedly sent to Margaret Mary Health with non-life threatening injuries.

A two vehicle crash sent three people to the hospital on Monday afternoon, and halted traffic for three hours.

Authorities in Ripley County responded to an accident on U.S. Highway 421 at the intersection of C.R. 700N between Napoleon and Osgood around 3:30 p.m. Monday.

The accident involved a vehicle driven by Maxine Young, 83, of Osgood and a semi tractor-trailer operated by Cleton Swann, 44, of Fort Wayne.

Young was traveling with a child at the time of the collision.

“Statements from drivers and witness indicate that Young and Swann were both traveling north on US 421,” said investigating officer Cpl. Rob Bradley of the Ripley County Sheriffs Office.

According to a report released by Bradley, Young was preparing to turn left on C.R. 700N when her vehicle was struck from behind by Swann’s semi.

“The driver and witness statements are conflicting,” said Cpl. Bradley. “It appears that Swann was attempting to pass Young’s vehicle believing it was turning right. Witnesses stated that Young activated her right turn signal and turned left into the path of the Semi operated by Swann.”

Both drivers and the passenger were  originally transported to Margaret Mary Health.

“There was considerable damage to both vehicles, State Highway property and a residential yard,” added Cpl. Bradley.

U.S. Highway 421 and C.R. 700N were closed to traffic for approximately three hours.

The Ripley County Sheriffs Office was assisted on the scene by Osgood Police, Napoleon Fire, Osgood Fire, and Ripley County EMS.
