TROY — An SUV ran a red light Saturday afternoon causing a crash that sent four people to the hospital.
According to Miami County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Chris Bobb, a Ford SUV driven by Alexander M. Fiegly, 32, of Huber Heights, who was northbound on State Route 202 at 11:37 a.m. Saturday, ran a red light at the intersection of State Route 41, hitting a Kia Rio driven by Daniel A. Whitehead, 37, of Springfield. Whitehead was traveling west on State Route 41 and was legally in the intersection, Bobb said.
Alexander Fiegly’s SUV flipped during impact, Bobb said, leaving him and two passengers with injuries not considered life-threatening. Whitehead was not injured, and the three passengers in his car also were uninjured, Bobb said.
Alexander Fiegly was transported to UVMC by Troy medics, while a front seat passenger, Ambery Fiegly, 29, was taken to Miami Valley Hospital by Elizabeth Township Squad. A 2-year-old boy also was taken by family members to Dayton Children’s by family to be evaluated, Bobb said.
Alexander Fiegly was charged with failure to obey traffic control for running the red light, he said.
