Hamilton police continue their investigation into a deadly rear-end collision that claimed the life of a woman Friday. The accident happened on westbound Ohio 129 just east of Fair Avenue when a Jeep Liberty was hit in the rear by a concrete bucket truck. The Jeep burst into flames, and the driver, who was trapped inside, could not escape the fire. The Butler County Coroner’s Office pronounced the victim dead at the scene. The crash shut down the highway for several hours, tying up downtown traffic during the evening rush hour. Police have not yet identified the victim, or the driver of the truck. Smoke from the vehicle fire could be seen for miles around. A yellow cross with pink, yellow, and white flowers was placed in the median where the crash occurred. It was surrounded by charred grass and concrete.
