Last fall, as thousands of Ohio State students prepared for their first day of class, one young woman who had planned to start her freshman year instead lay in a hospital bed. The young woman was involved in a serious pedestrian and car accident days before classes were scheduled to start when she was hit by a car while walking.
Everyone knows that when vehicles collide, the consequences can be devastating. However, what can be even more serious and potentially devastating is when a car accident involves a pedestrian. Sadly, that was the case in a recent Ohio car crash involving two vehicles and one person on foot.
Ohio residents from Columbus and across the state may be saddened to hear of the recent death of a Canal Winchester woman. The woman was killed in a fatal car accident involving a Chrysler sedan. At this time, no charges have been filed in connection with the accident, although an investigation is ongoing.Tragically, the accident took place about a week before Christmas on Dec. 17 at about 11:30 p.m. According to the police, the 35-year-old woman had been crossing Gender Road between Abbie Trails Drive and Wright Road in Columbus when she was struck by a sedan driven by a 40-year-old man. The woman was taken by emergency responders to Grant Medical Center, where she was later pronounced dead.
