UPDATE: Neighbors Want Change After Fatal High-Speed Crash
CLARK COUNTY -- Neighbors along Ridge Road in Springfield Township are hoping Township Trustees take a second look at the winding road where three teens were killed on March 26.
"There's been kids, stopping by and sitting around and talking and they pulled up and paid their respects," said Terry Wilson.
For two weeks, Terry Wilson has seen family and friends cope with the tragedy outside his home.
"It was a horrible sight, something I don't want to see again," Wilson said.
Police are still trying to figure out which of the teens was driving on March 26; however, the car was registered to 16-year-old Charles Luthe's mom. Also in the car, Wesley Culpepper, 15, and Daniel Tittle, 17. All three were killed on impact. Police say they were traveling at least 92 mph, and possibly as fast as 97 mph.
"You don't have a chance. You know, coming up over that hill there, at that rate of speed if you do lose control, you have no opportunity to save it," said Wilson who adds that drivers seem to fly down the narrow, winding road. There's no posted speed limit, and since it's a county road, that makes it 55 mph.
"It is concerning because I have to watch very carefully and if I pull out and somebody's coming over the hill, like I said, if they're doing a normal speed I don't have much of a problem, but if they're doing 50, 60 miles an hour, I don't have much chance at all."
There's never been a formal complaint about the safety on Ridge Road, according to a trustee with the township. Given this tragic crash, they are now going to look at everything on this road from signage to perhaps lowering the speed limit.
"As long as they do something about it. Again it's a dangerous situation," said Wilson.
CLARK COUNTY -- The car involved in a crash that killed three teens last month was owned by Suzanne Luthe, a Traffic Crash Report indicates.
Police say Suzanne Luthe is the mother of 16-year-old Charles Luthe, who was one of the three teens who died in the crash.
Also killed in the crash was 17-year-old Daniel Tittle of Medway, 15 year-old Wesley Culpepper of Huber Heights.
Police have not said yet who was driving the car early March 26 when it crashed along Ridge Road.
OSHP: Car Traveling 92-97 MPH During Crash that Killed Three Clark County Teens
CLARK COUNTY -- Highway Patrol troopers say the car carrying three high school students who were killed in a crash last month was traveling between 92 and 97 mph at the time of the crash.
Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers say that about 5:55 a.m. March 26, a 2010 Hyundai Sonata left Ridge Road, near State Route 41 in Clark County, and struck a tree. The vehicle was torn in half upon impact, troopers say.
Killed instantly were 17-year-old Daniel Tittle of Medway, 15 year-old Wesley Culpepper of Huber Heights, and 16-year-old Charles Luthe of Springfield.
Troopers have yet to identify who was driving.
