Gavin Alexander Dies, Lisa Alexander Hurt in Lima, OH, Car Accident

Lima, OH -- February 6, 2017, Gavin Alexander was killed, his mother Lisa injured, after an accident where a pickup crashed into their car.

According to reports released by the Ohio State Police, the accident occurred just before 6:00 p.m. at the intersection of Clum Road and Lawrence Road.

Their preliminary investigations indicate that 29-year-old Lisa Alexander was driving a Ford Taurus eastbound on Clum. Her son, 8-year-old Gavin, was riding in the back seat.

As their vehicle crossed Lawrence, a Ford F-150 driven by Richard Ortiz reportedly failed to yield the right of way to the Ford Taurus. The pickup crashed into the side of the car, which pushed it off-road into a cemetery.

All three people involved were rushed over to Lima Memorial Health System. Both Ortiz and Lisa sustained what were said to be non-life-threatening injuries. Gavin had critical injuries, and he later died in the hospital.

Authorities say that all involved were wearing seatbelts. It's not clear at this time if authorities are planning any citations or charges.

Investigations are ongoing.
