Fairfield Twp. police aren’t yet saying what caused the accident that killed 18-year-old Dorian Gray, whose 2013 Kia struck two vehicles, said police Capt. Doug Lanier.
At 2:44 p.m. Saturday, officers were dispatched to Bypass Ohio 4, south of Hamilton-Mason Road for a report of a multi-vehicle accident. Lanier said Gray’s Kia was traveling north on the bypass when it went left of center and struck a 2018 Toyota Sienna in the southbound lane. Gray’s vehicle then spun into the path of a 2001 Chevy Suburban.
