Hollansburg teen siblings injured in morning crash


Staff report



GREENVILLE – Three teen siblings were injured in a one-vehicle crash Wednesday morning.

Approximately 7:56 a.m., Darke County Deputies along with New Madison Fire and Tri-Village Rescue responded to the 1900 block of Mills Road on a report of a one- vehicle injury crash with a possible ejection.

Responding personnel found Brooklyn Godown, 17, of Hollansburg, was driving the black 2000 Grand Prix east in the 1900 block of Mills Road and lost control on an icy curve in the road. The vehicle went left-of-center and then off the right side of the road into a yard, striking a tree, phone junction box, another small tree and the corner of the house.

The driver and the front seat passenger, Allison Godown, 15, sustained minor injuries, and the rear passenger Chloe Godown, 13, was partially ejected out the back window. The driver and front passenger were wearing seat belts, and the rear passenger was not.

Three medical helicopters were called to the scene, but none would fly because of weather conditions.

All three occupants of the vehicle were transported to Wayne HealthCare by Tri-Village Rescue, and Chloe was then transferred to Dayton Children’s Hospital by Tri-Village Rescue for her injuries.

This accident remains under investigation by the Darke County Sheriff’s Office.
