An early-morning crash Monday, Dec. 8 claimed the life of Williamsburg School District treasurer Robin Davenport.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is reporting that the two-vehicle fatal crash occurred at 6:05 a.m. on Route 32 at the intersection of McKeever Pike in Williamsburg Township.

Involved in the accident was Clermont County deputy sheriff John Harper, 39, and Michael and Robin Davenport, of Lynchburg.

Batavia Post commander Randy McElfresh said that Harper, a Mt. Orab resident, was driving home from work, traveling eastbound on Route 32 in a 1999 Dodge Ram truck.

Michael Davenport, 48, driving a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe southbound on McKeever Pike, crossed Route 32 and was struck by Davenport in the passenger side.

The impact, which forced Harper's vehicle off the right side of the roadway, claimed the life of Robin Davenport, 46, who was a passenger in the right front seat of the Tahoe.

All three involved in the crash were transported to various hospitals, McElfresh said.

Harper, with serious injuries, and Michael Davenport, in stable condition, were taken to Clermont Mercy Hospital, and Robin Davenport passed away at the Bethesda North Hospital.

Drugs or alcohol were not involved in the crash, which remains under investigation.

"It is extremely important that people take their time and make sure that their movements can be made safely, especially at intersections and stop signs" McElfresh said. "Rushing through could cost them their life."
