CINCINNATI — The city dedicated a new crosswalk Tuesday morning where a 7-year-old girl died after a driver struck her and another young girl with his car earlier this year.

On the morning of March 30, Sharesse Lattimore and another 7-year-old were crossing Vine Street near Ehrman Avenue when a 17-year-old driver struck them. Police said the two girls were not in a crosswalk at the time of the crash. Lattimore later died from her injuries.

"We will be dedicating and hanging crosswalk signs at a crosswalk crossing Vine Street at the intersection of Vine Street and Ehrman Avenue. The crosswalk will be named 'Sharesse 'ReRe' Crossing,'" said City Council members Liz Keating and Jan-Michele Kearney in a news release announcing the dedication ceremony.
