A Michigan woman is to be charged with aggravated vehicular homicide following a Tuesday crash on Fostoria Road that led to the death of her seven-week-old infant daughter.
Trooper Chuck Grizzard of the Bowling Green Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said this morning that Lori A. Massingill, 38, Ida, Mich., is likely to face further charges. An infant boy, the twin of the girl, was also seriously injured and is not expected to survive.
The crash occurred on Fostoria Road at the railroad crossing just south of Ohio 163 in Troy Township at approximately 10:55 a.m., according to the patrol.
At that time, a 2006 Chevy Cobalt operated by Massingill, with the infant twins in the back seat, was northbound and travelling at a high rate of speed when it struck a railroad crossing.
The vehicle then went airborne, going off the right side of the roadway. It re-entered the roadway and went off the left side of the roadway, striking a ditch and rolling twice.
Massingill and the two infants were all transported to Mercy St. Vincent’s Medical Center, Toledo. The mother was transported by Troy Township Fire Department, and the infants were taken by Promedica Helicopter. Massingill was listed in fair condition Tuesday, but an update on her condition was not available this morning.
The female infant, named Presley, was pronounced deceased at St. Vincent’s. The male infant, named Parker, was later transported to the University of Michigan Children’s Hospital. A trooper said this morning that death protocols have begun for the infant, and he is not expected to survive.
Alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
