CINCINNATI - Parents living on Lafeuille Avenue in Westwood where a 9-year-old was killed while crossing the street have now started an online petition calling for safety changes to the intersection at Westbrook Drive.
"We won't stop until something is done," said Kimberly Evans of Westwood.
Evans and her mother Tracy Lovins have been collecting written petitions after the tragic accident that claimed the life of 9-year-old Tyala Frazier.
Police said the Westwood Elementary student was waiting for the school bus on Lafeuille Avenue when she crossed the street to say hello to a friend. When she crossed back, police said she darted into traffic and was struck by several passing motorists.
While police have said that speed was not a factor in the accident, neighbors say cars need to slow down on Lafeuille anyway. Lovins said they would like to see flashing lights, more signs or a crosswalk.
She's collected more than 1,000 signatures while watching children at the intersection. The petitions are also posted at Queen City Pizza and Queen City Market.
