Wrong-way collision on I-75 in SW Ohio kills 4, including boy

ASSOCIATED PRESS

FRANKLIN, Ohio — Two families are grieving Sunday after a head-on collision in southwestern Ohio killed four people, including a 7-year-old boy, and critically injured two other children.

Ohio State Patrol Sgt. Stan Jordan says alcohol is strongly suspected to be a factor in the crash, which happened at 2:30 a.m. two days before Christmas.

Jordan says a 40-year-old Joshua Nkansah of Fairfield, Ohio was driving with his children on Interstate 75 near Franklin when he turned his minivan around on the highway and started driving the wrong way.

He hit another minivan carrying Scott and Michele Barhorst of Madisonville, Tenn. and their four children.

Jordan says Nkansah and his 7-year-old son, and Scott and Michelle Barhorst were killed. Nkansah's 4-year-old son and the Barhorsts’ 9-year-old daughter are in critical condition.
