Pedestrian Killed On Interstate 75


(Hamilton)---The Ohio State Patrol is investigating a deadly car vs. pedestrian accident on I-75 in West Chester. The incident happened on Northbound 75 just south of Tylersville Road. The incident completely shut down the interstate for about 30 minutes, until troopers opened up the far left lane. No identification has been released on the victim yet.


Interstate Shut Down After Fire, Accident


(West Chester)---I-75 Southbound was shut down south of Union Centre Boulevard Thursday when a dump truck caught on fire. Thick black some could be seen for several miles, and an accident with injuries was reported at the scene as well. There was apparently a large fuel leak, so the Butler County Emergency Management Agency and the Ohio EPA were summoned to the scene.


Big River Get Down Moves Due To Rain Fears


(Hamilton)---Hamilton city crews had already installed the chain linked fence around RiversEdge Amphitheatre for Saturday's paid concert, David Shaw's Big River Get Down. Those efforts are now wasted, because the event is being moved indoors to the McDulin Parking Garage on Market Street. Rains from the remnants of Tropical Storm Bill are expected to soak the region this weekend, with up to two additional inches of rain predicted. The concert will continue to cost $10 admission. Free parking will be available in the garage, but the stairway and elevators will be closed in order to move the crowds to the box office/entrance. Among the bands performing Saturday are the Revivalists, fronted by the concert's namesake who is a Hamilton native.


No Indictment In Child Shooting


(Hamilton)---A Butler County Grand Jury will not indict a Hamilton mother in connection with a deadly shooting last week. 3 year old Marques Green was killed when he shot himself in the chest with a gun he had taken out of his mother's purse. Butler County Prosecutor Mike Gmoser (pictured) says the loss of the child far outweighs any punishment the state could impose on the mother. According to a news release from Gmoser's office, the mother had firearms training and a concealed carry permit.


Miami Asks State To Investigate Swing Hall Fire


(Oxford)---Miami University is asking the Ohio Fire Marshal's office to investigate the cause of Monday's dorm hall fire at Swing Hall on the Oxford campus. The fire caused damage to the attic and roof on the northwest corner of the building, which was dedicated in 1934. Firefighters from five area departments battled the flames. One firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion. No one was staying in the building at the time, since the university is on summer break.


Plane Crash Cause Released


(Liberty Township)---A new report is out into the probable cause of a deadly plane crash in Liberty Township last September. The National Transportation Safety Board says the pilot of the plane failed to maintain control after the plane stalled during an aerobatic maneuver. The cause of the engine stalling could not be determined by investigators, as well who was at the controls at the time. The experimental plane bounced off one house and crashed into the backyard of another on Sunrise View Circle on September 20th of last year. The crash killed two brothers who were part owners of the plane, 40 year old Jeff Krummen and his 49 year old brother Steven.


Child Shot To Death in Hamilton


(Hamilton)---Hamilton police have identified the 3 year old boy who accidentially shot himself to death at 709 Gordon Smith Boulevard Thursday. According to the 9-1-1 call, Marques Green found the gun in his mother's purse and started playing with it. The gun accidentially fired, striking the boy in the chest. Marques was taken to Fort Hamilton Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Butler County Prosecutor Mike Gmoser says he will take the case to a grand jury for consideration of possible charges.


Kroger Unveils Online Shopping


(Liberty Township)---Kroger says shoppers can now order groceries online, and pick up their orders at a drive-thru set up at their Marketplace store in Liberty Township. The service started Thursday, and so far, shoppers were giving the new service rave reviews. Tina Yelton says it allows her to spend more time with her family and less time walking up and down the aisles. The service is only offered at the Liberty Marketplace store right now, but it could expand in the near future.


Power Plant Operations Reduced


(Hamilton)---Hamilton city leaders announced Friday that they are idleing all four steam powered units at the power plant on North 3rd Street. The city will continue to operate a gas turbine and two hydro units. The move will reduce full time employment at the plant from 17 to 4 full-time jobs, but employees affected will be given opportunities to apply for other vacant city jobs. The city assures residents that the changes will not impact the reliability of electric service.


UPDATE: Teen Shooting Victim Dies


(Hamilton)---Hamilton police say the 14 year old boy who was shot in the head at a home on Fairview Avenue Wednesday has died. Gabriel Mejia succumbed to his injuries, according to Sgt. Ed Buns with the Hamilton Police Department. Police say Mejia and a 16 year old were playing with a gun when it accidentially fired, the bullet striking him in the head. The other teen was charged with Assault, Tampering with Evidence, and Discharging a Firearm. He made his first appearance in Butler County Juvenile Court Thursday, and now faces the possibility of upgraded charges.


Hamilton Police Investigate Possible Homicide


(Hamilton)---Hamilton police are trying to figure out who killed 29 year old Anthony Broadus. The Hamilton man died of a gunshot wound shortly after he was found lying in a pool of blood on the 600 block of East Avenue late Wednesday night. Paramedics were waiting for Air Care to take Broadus to University Hospital when he passed away at the Butler County Regional Airport.
