Truck Driver Critically Injured In Crash At Airport Exit

The crash closed the ramp from I-275 to Airport Access Road in Erlanger Friday morning, and put a Cincinnati man in the hospital with life threatening injuries.

(Erlanger, Ky.) – A truck driver suffered life-threatening injuries when a SUV ran a red light and collided with a semi Friday morning.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Office says the wreck occurred about 3:41 a.m. at the Interstate 275 ramp at KY 212-Airport Access Road.

George Moore, 64, of Cincinnati was driving a 2017 Freightliner semi and attempting to turn left from the I-275 eastbound off-ramp onto northbound KY 212. As he made the turn, witnesses told deputies, a 2009 Chrysler Town & Country driven by Ariel Pereyra, 21, of Passaic, New Jersey, was heading south on KY 212 and ran the red light.

Moore was transported to University of Cincinnati Medical Center in Cincinnati with suspected life-threatening injuries.

Pereyra was transported to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Florence for minor injuries.

Two passengers in Pereyra’s vehicle were hospitalized. Bladimir Marte, 21, of Passaic, N.J., was also transported to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Florence for minor injuries. Frank Boglev, 36, of Passaic, N.J., was transported to UC Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The wreck shut down Ky 212 and the ramp for part of the morning Friday. All vehicles heading to CVG were redirected onto eastbound I-275 to Mineola Pike.

Crash investigators with the sheriff’s office say drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash, however, they are unsure if speeding may have played a part. Pereyra and her passengers are cooperating with investigators.

Hebron Fire/EMS and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport Fire/EMS units assisted with all transports to the local hospitals.

Deputies say Moore was operating the truck for A-One Pallet Distributing Company of Florence.
