CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) - Centerville Police speed to an accident, just moments after wrapping up an interview with 2 NEWS about the parts of town with the most traffic accidents.
"As I was leaving the interview with you, we had one crash on Far Hills at Fireside Drive which is in one of our target-enforcement areas," said Centerville Police Officer John Davis, " Prior to the interview we also had a crash on Wilmington Pike, in one of the same target-areas."
Police are stepping up patrols in those problem areas in order to keep you and your family safe.
"We're looking for the distracted drivers, the following too closely, obviously speed," explains Officer Davis.
Darla Kibler is thankful for that. She has three young kids. Her family lives on Main Street across from Savona, one of those targeted areas.
Just last month, a car went crashing through the restaurant. Thankfully it was closed at the time, the driver only suffered minor injuries.
It's now boarded up and has yet to re-open.
Darla says she now fears for her kids' safety.
"It makes me nervous. After that big accident happened across the street, I keep my kids out of that yard. I mean I'm just glad it didn't happen on this side of the street," she says.
And she hopes you will take her advice.
"Slow down. I don't want my kids getting hurt or ran over," comments Darla.
