An accident involving two cars and two motorcycles on Ohio 128 sends four people to hospital on July 12, 2011. The motorcycle-and-car accident occurred at around 1 p.m.
Hamilton County Sheriff’s Deputies said Pamela Whalen of Harrison crashed her Dodge Magnum into a Toyota Corolla stopped in the 11600 block of S.R. 128. Whalen failed to notice the Toyota stopped in front of her. Both cars were in the southbound lanes.
The impact pushed the Toyota, driven by Steven Newman of Lebanon, into the northbound lane, and into the path of two motorcyclists. The Toyota continued across the road and came to a stop at a storefront without damaging it.
Motorcycle rider Steve Maham of Cincinnati received the most serious injuries in the crash. The impact threw him off his Harley Davidson, landing on the road. He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. An AirCare flight took Maham to the hospital.
The rider of the other motorcycle, Michael Stocker of Cincinnati, also came off his Harley Davidson. Stocker received no injuries despite the fact he was not wearing a helmet. He was the only one who did not go to the hospital.
Whalen and Newman received treatment for minor injuries and were released. A passenger in the Magnum also went to the hospital to be looked at. Maham remains in the hospital, listed in stable condition.
