The horrificmultiple chain-reaction collisions took place on Interstate 275, close to the Colerain Township suburb.
In horror one man screamed “She’s about to die,” as he filmed the crowd that had gathered around the helpless teenage girl.
According to a report from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department, the young girl had exited a damaged vehicle and was standing on the shoulder near “a cable barrier, a type of fencing made of rope-like steel wire cables.” An out-of-control car slammed into the barrier, “snapping a cable, which then struck the girl and killed her” office spokesman Jim Knapp.
At least 20 other people were taken to nearby hospitals with their injuries that are not expected to be life-threatening. Scattered car wreckage forced the interstate to be closed for hours.
