Trenton Teen Dies In Crash

Edgewood High School is mourning the death of a student in a car crash Tuesday evening. 15 year old Hallie Deaton was a passenger in a Mustang that turned into the path of a Silverado pickup truck on State Route 73 and Wehr Road. Three other teens were hospitalized, including the 16 year old male driver of the car. No one in the truck was seriously hurt. The school is off for spring break this week, but counselors will be available Thursday 1pm-3pm. Hallie's friends and family have set up a Go Fund Me to help the family with expenses.

I-75 Crash Kills Indiana Trucker

The Butler County Coroner's Office says the trucker killed in a crash on northbound I-75 Tuesday was from Indiana. 43 year old James Barnett III was heading northbound when he swerved to avoid a semi that had slowed down in front of him. He clipped the back of the other truck, and overturned into a concrete median. Barnett died of multiple traumatic injuries when he was ejected from the cab. The truck also lost its load of steel coils, and there was also a fuel leak from the damaged truck. Northbound 75 near the Monroe rest area and a couple of southbound lanes were closed for several hours as the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Butler County Emergency Management Agency, ODOT, and the Ohio EPA investigated the crash and cleaned up the scene. Barnett was from Sellersburg, Indiana, which is just north of Louisville, Kentucky.

 

Activity Center Sold

West Chester Trustees have agreed to sell the former senior activity center building at 7900 Cox Road. RS Professionals, LLC of West Chester has offered $1.9 million for the property behind the Tylersville Road Kroger store. Kroger had planned to purchase the land for an expansion, but that project was later scrapped. RS Professionals plans to rennovate the building for use as office space. The sales agreement includes a 30 day inspection period and 60 days to finalize payment. The deal was approved during an emergency board of trustees meeting Wednesday.

RTA Drops Mask Mandate

Masks are now optional on Butler County Regional Transit Authority buses, as well as other vehicles and the agency's indoor spaces. The policy change was announced Tuesday, one day after a federal judge overturned the Biden Administration's mask mandate. The RTA says masks will remain optional as the administration reviews the judge's ruling. The Transportation Security Administration announced they were suspending enforcement of the nationwide mandate.

Boyd Sentenced To Prison

Former Hamilton chiropractor Stephen Boyd was in the Butler County Jail Monday morning, awaiting his transfer to state prison. Boyd was sentenced Friday to 11 years and 9 months behind bars after pleading guilty to sex crimes involving former patients and employees. In a sentencing memorandum filed with the court, assistant county prosecutor Stephen Wagner called Boyd's actions reprehensible. He says Boyd groomed the nine victims, convincing them his groping and touching was part of their treatment. 

Gmoser: Officers Acted Reasonably

Butler County Prosecutor Michael Gmoser met with reporters for an hour Tuesday, explaining step-by-step how a grand jury chose not to charge five Monroe police officers with the February 11th shooting death of 35 year old Dustin Booth. Gmoser says Booth stood up and pointed a large .45 caliber handgun at officers after they tried to take him into custody during a traffic stop. Gmoser says police also acted reasonably in the events leading up to the shooting, and he says he had no bias as he presented the case to the grand jury. Booth's family is planning a lawsuit against Monroe police.
