A Glencoe man is dead after being hit by a van early Sunday morning on I-71/75 near the US 42 exit in Florence.
Police say James Lutz, of Glencoe, and Cynthia Gooch of Erlanger, were standing on the side of the interstate around 5:45am, apparently working on their truck, when a mini-van, driven by Schawanna Jones of Covington hit them.
Lutz was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Boone County coroner’s office. Gooch and Jones were both transported to UC Medical Center in Cincinnati with serious injuries.
The crash remains under investigation and charges have not yet been filed.
