Arlington Heights, Ohio – May 26, 2011

One person was hospitalized–and nearby residents were told to stay in their homes–after a vehicle smashed into a building in Arlington Heights on Thursday. It happened around 1 p.m. near Interstate 75, and the damaged structure is said to hold chemicals used by SunSpot Pool & Patio.

The Cincinnati Police Department has not given a name for the driver involved, but they say that distraction or lack of attention may be to blame for the single-vehicle wreck. The Chevrolet had been traveling on Elliot Drive when the vehicle somehow left the roadway and struck the storage building—causing chemicals to spill.

Hazardous materials crews aided in the emergency response, and they withdrew their Shelter in Place warning about two hours after the crash. The driver was treated at an area hospital. That person’s condition is currently stable, according to reports.
