Two Young Girls Hurt After Driver Crashes Into Kenton Co. Home

Two young girls are recovering and a Falmouth man is behind bars after a vehicle crashed into a home full of people in southern Kenton County.

Just after 7 p.m. Thursday, Kenton County Police responded to the 15000 block of Madison Pike where they found a truck had crashed into a house and a 4-year old girl trapped under the truck.

The Piner-Fiskburg and Independence fire departments, along with police, worked to free the child.

The girl was taken by helicopter to Cincinnati Children's Hospital, from which she was later released.

A 7-year old girl was also injured in the crash and taken by ambulance to Children's Hospital. She, too, was later released. Police said the girls are expected to make full recoveries.

Meanwhile, Mason Cordray, 21, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, first degree criminal mischief, two counts of fourth degree assault, and 14 counts of first degree wanton endangerment.

There were a total of fourteen people in the home, police said.

According to the early investigation, Cordray was driving south on Madison Pike when he lost control of his Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and left the roadway, hit the home, and broke through a wall partially.

Cordray is being held at the Kenton County Detention Center and is expected to be arraigned Friday morning in Kenton District Court.
