OXFORD, Ohio (AP) - Deputies say a dump truck hauling a back hoe hit an overpass in southwest Ohio, causing the heavy vehicle to slide off the trailer and hit an oncoming car. The driver of the car was killed.

The Butler County Sheriff’s Office says it happened Wednesday night on U.S. 27 in Hanover Township near Hamilton.

A report says the dump truck was hauling a back hoe on a trailer when it hit a railroad overpass, pushing the back hoe off the trailer and into the oncoming car. Police say the driver, 56-year-old Patricia Manning, was dead at the scene.

A child and another passenger in the car - as well as the driver of the dump truck - were taken to hospitals.

The crash is still being investigated.
