Sunday evening, Damien Henderson, 16, was killed in a motor vehicle accident when the speeding vehicle he was in crashed into a wall near Kellogg Avenue on eastbound I-275.
The vehicle, driven by 41-year-old Larry Molloy of Cincinnati, was going 80 miles per hour in a 65 mile per hour zone. Henderson was thrown from the vehicle and transported to Anderson Mercy Hospital where he died from his injuries. He was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the accident.
Two other teens in the vehicle, Dylan Molloy and Daniel Hesslin, were wearing a seatbelt and were not injured.
Investigators believe alcohol was a factor in the crash as Molloy, who was not injured in the accident, had a previous DUI conviction in 2007 and 2009. No charges have been brought against Molloy, however, the crash remains under investigation.
