BLENDON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WCMH) — A 14-year-old girl collides with an SUV on a stretch of road with limited sidewalks and a very narrow road.
“Luckily no broken bones, but lots and lots of road rash, and emotionally very shook up,” said the girl’s mother, Suzanne Zonner following her daughter’s accident on Dempsey Road.
Now Zonner wants improvements to the road after she has been witnessing how many people without a vehicle use that road.
Blendon Township Police said since 2018, there have been 24 crashes and two incidents involving people on bicycles, but only one collision.
The latest one involved that teenager riding her bike on Dempsey Road.
Zonner received a frightening phone call that her 14-year-old daughter had collided with an SUV and was run over while riding her bike.
“No parent ever wants to get that phone call,” said Zonner.
Luckily her physical injuries were minor.
