Dayton, OH (December 18, 2023) – At around 12:15 a.m. on December 17, the Dayton Police Department was dispatched to the scene of a collision in Montgomery County. According to reports, a collision occurred in the area of Catalpa Drive and Cherry Drive.

Further investigations show that a black 2020 Kia Rio was traveling east on Cherry Drive. As the vehicle proceeded through the intersection of Catalpa Drive, it failed to make the required stop. As a result, the vehicle collided with a gray 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The driver of the Kia fled the scene of the crash. However, authorities identified the driver of the vehicle.

Authorities confirmed that 18-year-old Jevion Baxter sustained injuries in the crash. He was transported to Kettering Health Dayton for medical care. At this time, the Dayton police department is investigating the crash.

We hope Jevion Baxter recovers quickly from his injuries.
