Family Fights for Crosswalk at Busy Intersection

MIAMISBURG -- A Carlisle family continues the fight to save lives at the intersection they say killed one of their own.

At the corner of 725 and Mall Woods Drive in Miamisburg, William Kish, 32, and his dog Rocc were killed while walking in front of this Toys R' Us. Since the death in February his family has been fighting to put a crosswalk there.

"Its been a challenge but we're not giving up. We are going to keep going and going until we get a crosswalk put in," said Kissh's cousin Amanda Sumpter. "They say the area is part Miamisburg, part ODOT and neither one of them wants to take responsibility and do anything so we're going to send every signature on the petition we can get and send it to both areas and keep going until somethings done."

Taking advantage of holiday shoppers in front of Toys "R" Us, the family knows every signature and every like on their Facebook page "Petition for Crosswalk," helps their cause.

"I think it's a good thing, this is a very busy area and it's something we need. I was happy to sign the petition. I have five children of my own and I couldn't imagine one of them getting hurt or killed. That would be a terrible thing," said Chris Runyeon who signed the petition.

On numerous occasions our cameras have caught person after person run across the five lanes of moving traffic. The City of Miamisburg tells us they are currently conducting a study to see if a crosswalk can be put in, but only if it doesn't disrupt the flow of traffic.
Kish's family hopes something gets done soon.

"Please, please do whatever you can, not just 'cause we lost a loved one but because there's so many people that try to cross these areas," said Sumpter.

Kish's family tells us they got 300 signatures today in the three hours they were out. But they are not done. They plan to be back out soon at the Shell gas station nearby to get more signatures. They are also asking for more likes on their Facebook Page.
