        A Hamilton woman remained in serious condition at University Hospital on Wednesday after she was injured in a head-on crash Monday in Fairfield.

        Amy Banks, 22, suffered multiple injuries, said hospital spokeswoman Donna Buckler. Mrs. Banks was airlifted to University after the accident on Bobmeyer Road in front of the Butler County Regional Airport.

        Three other people, including two children, were sent to hospitals but have been released.

        Kyle Banks, 5, was released from Children's Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati on Wednesday. Megan Banks, 1, was treated at Children's on Monday and released.

        Roy Phillips, 32, of Hamilton was treated at Mercy Hospital in Fairfield on Monday and released.

        Police said Mr. Phillips' 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was traveling north on Bobmeyer when it went left of center on a curve and struck Mrs. Banks' 1987 Dodge Charger head-on.

        Mr. Phillips was cited for failure to control and speed too fast for conditions, Fairfield Police Officer Russell Strickland said.
