HAMILTON ― A car jumped a curb off Grand Boulevard Wednesday morning and flipped before crashing into the Five Point Market.

Tiffany Hutchens, 35, of Fairfield Twp., was driving the car when she lost control coming out of the roundabout, according to police. The car jumped the curb, flipped, and ended up on its roof as it crashed into the market. It’s uncertain how fast the vehicle was traveling when it left the roadway.

Police and emergency medical personnel were dispatched at 9:28 a.m. Wednesday.

Hutchens is expected to be cited for failure to control and driving under a suspended license. She was transported to Bethesda Butler for non-life-threatening injuries, said Fairfield Twp. Sgt. Brandon McCroskey, adding Hutchens also has misdemeanor warrants out of Trenton.

The township initiated the investigation, but it had since been turned over to the Hamilton Police Department because it’s within the city limits.

Hamilton Police Sgt. Brian Ungerbuehler said the crash is under investigation, and a report will be completed when the investigation is complete. The report was not released prior to the Journal-News deadline, and this story will be updated online.

The passenger, Frank Ondrovich, 68, initially told police he was driving, McCroskey said, but through the course of the investigation, police discovered Hutchens was the driver.

Ondrovich was released by authorities, McCroskey said.
