Sisters killed

WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE, Ohio (AP) – Authorities say two sisters have been killed in a head-on crash in Fayette County.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says Mary Harris, 65, and Carole Johnson, 53, were dead at the scene after Harris’ Ford Fusion collided with a pickup truck at an intersection Monday morning near Washington Court House.

The 20-year-old driver of the Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck and a 1-year-old child strapped into a car seat in the truck were injured and taken to a hospital. They were expected to survive.

Family members said Johnson had recently had a heart procedure and was unable to drive, so Harris was taking her to a doctor’s appointment when she pulled into an intersection in front of the truck.

The sisters lived in nearby Greenfield.
