Andrew Blankenship; Driver Responsible For Anderson Township Triple-fatal Crash Nabbed

A man has been charged in connection to a triple-fatal crash in Anderson Township last Friday.

According to court documents, Andrew Blankenship, 29, has been charged with three felony counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and one count of vehicular assault.

Blankenship was booked into the Hamilton County Justice Center on Friday. This comes after he was released on bond from a Kentucky jail earlier in the day.

According to a release, on April 7, around 9:27 p.m., the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office was called out for a triple fatal crash that occurred on 275 eastbound near the 5 Mile and New Richmond exits.

Police said a blue Dodge pickup truck was traveling eastbound at a high rate of speed and without lights on. The driver lost control and struck an occupied stopped car that was assisting another occupied disabled car in the right emergency lane.

As a result, the struck vehicle crashed into the disabled vehicle, which struck a tow truck driver standing outside his vehicle.

Two people were pronounced dead at the scene, and another person died at the UC Emergency Room, police said.

The victims have been identified as AAA tow truck driver 38-year-old Keith Skaggs, 22-year-old Janaya Glover, and 66-year-old Richard Glasser, according to the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office. Another victim, 25-year-old John Glover, was injured in the crash.

According to police, the driver of the blue Dodge that caused the crash was identified as 29-year-old Andrew Blankenship.

Police said Blankenship was transported to the UC emergency room with serious, non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators said excessive speed and impairment are possible factors in the crash.
