Neighbors near the crash said drivers speed down North Tecumseh Road often.
“It’s a straight stretch,” Bobbi Landis said. “People don’t pay attention. They come down here and they just think it goes on forever.”
Landis has lived in the area for more than 40 years, she said, and the street doesn’t have any sidewalks or a shoulder in several spots.
“It’s scary because we’ve got grand kids now we’ve got to worry about,” she said. “We have to make sure we’re off the road because they don’t care. They just tear down.”
The area where this crash occurred isn’t a hot spot for crashes in Clark County, Merrill said.
“We don’t have a large amount of calls there,” he said. “We do go out and try to enforce the speed.”
