WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WOIO) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol confirmed a 17-year-old Louisville, Ohio boy died on Thursday from his injuries suffered in the two-car Washington Township crash on Tuesday night.

OSHP identified him as Thomas A. Warner.

The crash happened at the intersection of Georgetown Road and Paris Avenue at 9:20 p.m.
