Family Fighting For Crosswalk Upset It's Not Yet Installed
MIAMISBURG -- It's a story you only saw right here.
A grieving family fought for a crosswalk where their loved one was hit and killed by a car on State Route 725.
It was supposed to be installed by now, and the family is wondering why it's not done.
William Kish's family refuses to let his memory fade away.
"He always going to be a part of my family so these crosses are always going to be here," said Kandis Sumpter, William's Aunt.
If you've driven along State Route 725 near I-75 in the past year and a half, you might recognize these crosses for William and his dog Roccs.
"We want people to remember William and to remember we're fighting for their loved one that could be walking across here sometime," said Sumpter.
But their real fight has been to get a crosswalk put in across the five lanes of heavy traffic on 725.
"I know some people get tired of hearing the story over but we're not only here fighting for William we're fighting for everyone that crosses here," said Sumpter.
They've been fighting for it since William was hit and killed in February of 2013.
After nearly a year, and several stories on our air, the City of Miamisburg's Mayor broke the news that they would put in a crosswalk in an email. In it, he wrote the final plans were expected to be approved early this year with the crosswalk to be completed in early spring.
"It's the end of July and there's still no crosswalk and nobody wants to say anything about why there's no crosswalk," said Sumpter.
We spoke to the City of Miamisburg, they tell us the process has taken longer than initially thought.
But for William's family, they just want to make sure no one has to go through what they have this past year.
"We've lost a loved one out here, there's been several accidents and we just want to save another life." said Sumpter.
The City of Miamisburg says they are currently working with a consultant to make sure the crosswalk is safe for pedestrians.
We're told the crosswalk will be in place by the end of the year.
