Spencerville, OH – Fatal Three-Vehicle Crash at Sunderland Rd and Spencerville Rd

Spencerville, OH (April 18, 2024) – A devastating three-vehicle collision occurred at the intersection of Sunderland Rd and Spencerville Rd on Tuesday morning, April 17, at approximately 9:30 AM. Felica M. Higginbotham, 20, of Lima, failed to halt at a stop sign while driving northbound in a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt, entering the intersection and colliding with a westbound 1996 Kenworth semi driven by Nicholas J. Myers, 34, of Grover Hill.

After the initial collision, Higginbotham’s vehicle was struck by an eastbound 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, operated by Jeffrey D. Hunt, 60, also of Lima. Higginbotham sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Hunt was transported to Mercy-St. Rita’s Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, while Myers received on-scene treatment.

Multiple agencies including local police, fire, and EMS teams assisted at the crash site. The crash is still under investigation, with no initial indications of impairment by drugs or alcohol. The Ohio State Highway Patrol continues to stress the importance of seatbelt use and attentive driving.
