City Makes Changes Following Pedestrian Death
DAYTON -- Safety measures are being taken on Gettysburg Avenue after a pedestrian was hit twice by a car and killed.
Christopher Frock was jaywalking but his death had many people outraged, including his family. Frock was living at the men's shelter on Gettysburg and was hit crossing just one block north.
"It has been a real struggle for the family," said Molly Gillum, Frock's cousin.
"Chris was a great light in our family and everybody remembers his laughterm," Gillum said.
Gillum wants more than just the memorial of flowers and mementos left at the crash site to come from her cousin's death.
"He's kind of lighting the way for everybody else that has to come this way," Gillum said.
In the wake of the crash the Dayton Public Works Department conducted a traffic study. They have started building a plan they hope will ease Frock's concerns for others.
"I feel bad for the family as well," said Public Works Director Fred Stovall. "That's why I'm trying to do some things as quickly as possible so we don't have the same situation occur again."
The city will upgrade bulbs in 11 street lights on Gettysburg Avenue, between Nicholas Road and Broadcast Plaza. Illumination will be doubled, costing the city just $460 per year.
The city has also already installed three neon yellow pedestrian signs as a warning to vehicular traffic.
The most visible change will be the implementation of a beacon crosswalk connecting the men's shelter on the west to the bus stop on the east side of Gettysburg. It will include a blinking signal to warm oncoming traffic.
Some people who walk the route say it's way overdue.
"Now it's a big issue and people are paying attention because something happened," said Hunter Folden, "but before then people kind of put it on the bottom of the file you know?"
Public Works wants to complete the crosswalk within 30 days.
For Molly Gillum, any help for those who walk on Gettysburg honors the memory of her cousin.
"This is not in vain," she said. "We're not doing this to get back at the city, we're doing this to help everybody else."
