Police in Monroe County say a 35-year-old woman and a 5-year-old child were killed in a crash with a driver who is believed to have been texting while driving.

The unidentified Ohio woman and child were driving southbound in a 2010 Hyundai Elantra when it was rear ended on US-23 by a 2007 Dodge Ram.

Police say 27-year-old Todd Moyer of Holt was driving the truck.

The force of the crash sent the Hyundai into a 2004 Toyota being driven by a 20-year-old from Findlay, Ohio.

Moyer's truck continued on after hitting the Hyundai, striking a 2012 Cadillac CTS with a Troy couple inside.

Both the woman and the child were pronounced dead at the scene.

All of the other people involved refused medical treatment.

The investigation is ongoing. It's not yet clear what charges, if any, will be issued in relation to the accident.
