BETTSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — The State Highway Patrol says a car hit an SUV head-on in northern Ohio, killing the driver of the car and a 6-week-old boy in the SUV.
Troopers say a northbound car crossed the center line on State Route 12 in Seneca County and struck the SUV on Sunday evening.
The patrol says the infant, Dhruv Misra, and the driver of the car, 21-year-old Casey Monroe, of Burgoon, died at a Toledo hospital early Monday.
Two adults and a 2-year-old in the SUV were taken to a hospital with injuries that weren't considered life-threatening.
Troopers say the children were in proper safety seats, and the adults in the SUV wore safety belts. Monroe did not.
Authorities are investigating whether alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash.
