Central Ohio Crashes Result In 5 Deaths

Authorities say five people were killed in two separate head-on crashes in central Ohio. 

Three people - including a 2-year-old boy and a Dublin high school student - were killed last  night when a Mercury Mountaineer SUV crashed head-on into a Pontiac Bonneville carrying a family of four on a dark road in southern Union County. The  Sheriff's Office identified the victims as 30-year-old Joshua Fraley, 2-year-old Easton Fraley, both of Mechanicsburg and 17-year-old Olivia Archer. Three other people, including a child, were hospitalized. The investigation continues today. The accident came just hours after two women  were killed in a head-on crash in Fairfield County.
