Three-car crash injures driver

        LIBERTY TWP. - A three-vehicle crash Saturday that sent a 21-year-old man to the hospital remains under investigation by the Butler County Sheriff's Office.

        Mario Gallegos of West Chester was taken to Middletown Regional Hospital after the 1:45 p.m. crash at Ohio 747 and the Michael A. Fox Highway.

        He was treated for minor injuries and released, a nursing supervisor said Monday.

        Mr. Gallegos was headed north on Ohio 747 when he turned his blue 1996 BMW left to enter the Fox highway in the path of two cars heading south, said Detective Monte Mayer, sheriff's spokesman.

        Matthew Shellcroft, 17, of West Chester, hit Mr. Gallegos with his red 1994 Ford Taurus, spinning Mr. Gallegos' car into the path of the other southbound car, a 1996 black Chevrolet Camaro, Detective Mayer said.

        The driver of the Camaro, Sean Kelly, 16, of Hamilton, then struck Mr. Gallegos' car, he said.

        Neither of those drivers, nor a 17-year-old passenger in Sean's car, was injured.

        No charges have been filed in the crash.
