The Cincinnati Enquirer

        GLENCOE — A 44-year-old Elmwood Place woman and a 24-year-old Michigan man died in a four-car accident on Interstate 71 in Gallatin County early Sunday morning.

        Carmen Williams, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was a passenger in a 1998 BMW driven by Matthew S. Burton, 48, of Amberly Village.

        Mr. Burton was flown to University Hospital, where he was in serious condition Monday.

        Vince Rutledge, 38, of Queen City Avenue in Cincinnati, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and jailed in the Carroll County Detention Center, state police said. Mr. Rutledge was uninjured.

        Mr. Rutledge's car was traveling northbound on I-71 about two miles north of Glencoe at 12:10 a.m. Sunday, when he struck the rear end of a car in front of him, police said.

        The two cars swerved to either side of the road, but Mr. Burton's 1998 BMW, traveling behind Mr. Rutledge's car, went into the southbound lane and struck a 1991 Ford Aerostar van head-on.

        Richard Moskwa Jr. of Hazel Park, Mich., who was riding in the Aerostar, died at UK Medical Center on Sunday morning, state police said. His father, Richard F. Moskwa Sr. was in fair condition Monday at UK Medical Center.

        Katrina Hodge, 20, of North College Hill, who was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Malibu received minor injuries and sought her own treatment.
