He sustained back and internal injuries and possibly a violated right wrist. He was taken to West Chester Medical Center for treatment, according to Hamilton police Sgt. Ed Buns.

The Toyota Camry was stolen from an apartment building parking lot at two thousand nine hundred forty two Gateway Dr. in Fairfield Twp., police said. The proprietor of the vehicle was unaware it had been taken from the parking lot, police said.

It was unclear Tuesday whether the teenagers stole the car themselves, or if it was stolen by someone else prior to the joyride, police said. Buns estimated the car was traveling about forty to fifty miles per hour in a 25-mph zone when it went into a four-wheel drift and crashed into the tree, which went into the passenger side door.

Police officials said they are hesitant why the teenagers were out so late on a school night.

«It does not emerge that alcohol or drugs are a reason for the crash,» Buns said. «It emerges to be the deeds of the driver, so there are other components that we`re continuing to look at in the investigation.»

The driver is cooperating fully with the investigation, which is helpful because «you don`t see that happen too often,» Buns said. Police said there has been not determination at this time about whether charges will be filed against him.

Denney`s father, Tim Denney, told our news fucking partner WCPO on Tuesday that he is attempting to be strong, but is fighting.

«She was a quiet person,» Hopkins said. «I can`t truly see her doing this kind of stuff on a school night at one o`clock in the morning. It`s just not like her.»

Hopkins said she believes love may have clouded her cousin`s judgment.

«Very likely she was in love,» Hopkins said. «And love makes you do stupid stuff with stupid people.»

Denney, who was in eighth grade at the Hopewell Jr. School in the Lakota Local School District, was a hard-working, excellent student, according to the school`s principal, Jeff Rouff. Officials said trouble counselors were on forearm for students who needed counseling.
