Wrong Way Driver Causes Three-Car Collision on 471

Lindsay Milligan. Campbell County Detention Center. 
A three-car crash on 471 N on April 16 left one driver in jail, debris all over the roadway and all three cars towed from the scene.

Lindsay Milligan, 21, of Cincinnati, was arrested by Fort Thomas Police and charged with driving under the influence and wanton endangerment. She had a passenger in her car.

Just after 3 a.m., Campbell County Dispatch put out an "attempt to locate" on a late model Ford Taurus that was coming into Kentucky from Cincinnati  and was traveling south in the northbound lane on 471.

Minutes later, a head on collision occurred at the 2.7 mile marker.


According to the collision report, the driver of the second car, a white Volkswagen Jetta, was driving north on interstate 471 and saw headlights coming toward him. He tried to swerve left to avoid a head-on collision but couldn't completely avoid the car, allegedly driven by Milligan.

The front passenger side of the Taurus hit the front passenger side of the Jetta.

Just after the initial collision, a black Kia Soul approached the collision site and tried to swerve around the debris, but hit the Taurus. All three cars were severely damaged and were blocking the roadway. They were all towed from the site.

According to police reports, Milligan was given a field sobriety test for alcohol. Police records indicate that she "was confused and was under the influence of an alcoholic beverage. She was very indifferent to what was happening, she seemed to have no remorse for the victims of the incident."

No one was seriously hurt in the crash.

Milligan was booked into the Campbell County Detention Center at 3:45 a.m. on April 16 with a $2,000 bond.
