It is a privite community the driver should have been paying attention. The speed limit is 25 mph if he was paying attention this should have never happened but everyone thinks they are so busy they need to talk on the phone,text, and everything else when they are driving. if you have to use your phone will driving because you think it is so important and that cant wait you need to pull over and stop!
Shouldn't she have been paying attention too. Since her and the baby are alive, it seems as if the driver wasn't even driving 25.

I live at Lake Choctaw. It upsets me to see so many people on here blaming the woman for this. There are NO sidewalks. It is a lovely place to live, but people who are out for exercise must walk on the street. There are no walking or bike paths nearby either. Obviously the SUV driver was not paying any attention. Get the facts before you start posting rude comments, please. And maybe you could also show some compassion for the victims of this terrible accident.

I know the victim personally and she is an absolutely responsible parent of three beautiful children. She was likely walking for exercise in her neighborhood, where there are no sidewalks. The Madison County Sheriff suspects that the driver, a 23 yoa male, was using his mobile telephone while driving, leading to the accident. If charges are filed, I hope the judge suspends the driver's license for operating his car while dividing his attention between his driving and his mobile telephone. The Ohio General Assembly needs to pass a law prohibiting the use of mobile telephones while driving and violators of that law should receive the same penalties as drunk drivers, in my opinion.

Ok I'm guessing that a few of the posters on this site haven't completed middle school let alone high school. Why are you questioning the poor victim and her child? They were walking along the road in a neighborhood (We all do it). The person driving the SUV wasn't paying attention and hit them. He will be charged, he will lose his license and he will probably be sued by the family he hit. Now that this is over can sum of youse peeps pik up a book an git sum learnin. Y'all sownd like u nevr had no edukation. You aren't even using internet acronyms LOL. Yes the little yellow bus honking in front of your house is for you!!!

So basically you are saying that there are a lot of street walkers at Lake Choctaw? Directions, please?

Is anyone proofing these articles before they are posted?! In the 4th paragraph it states, "There was another lady with them, who was taking car of the baby..." This should state: "There was another lady with them, who was taking care of the baby..."!!!!! Someone, anyone, with at least one good eye and a command of the English language should be proofing these articles since it is clear that the writers themselves are not able to do so. It's bad enough that most people who post on these boards don't know the difference between "their" "there" and "they're," but if writing is your profession then take some pride and give your article a good proofread before posting it. Being the first to break the story is not a good enough excuse--proofreading takes but a second!

West Choctaw is a residential street inside the homeowner's association, and there is no sidewalk. There are ALWAYS people walking, jogging, biking along these streets.

Wow, this is quite a funny blog. People living here know and everyone partakes in the activity on the roads. It is not abnormal or careless to be walking on these roads. I have taken 2 small children on training wheels plus a dog on walks. We walk, jog, ride scooters, skate, everything. The neighborhood is this way. Residents move here and live here knowing this is the way of the neighborhood. It's closed to thru traffic and the speed limit is fairly well enforced. As a matter of fact in the last 3 days I've seen 2 people pulled over by the deputy. Stuff happens. We all use the cell while driving and probably more back here because it isn't busy and we might think it isn't as bad as using cells on the interstate. Guess this will be eye-opener for all, including me. Thank God the baby and mom are going to be fine.

This young man was likely at fault for not paying attention. However, that is a community that feel like they are wealthy and bad things shouldn't happen to them and many of them live life with their head in the clouds. That subdivision can afford to hire it's own police force, yet it threw such a fit when a solid fortune 500 company wanted to locate a few miles away because it might cause traffic problems once a month. Despite Madison County's falling tax revenues, these people killed a biz that would have brought $500,000 to the county in sales tax. Lake community members felt they were too important to be bothered helping the rest of the county. Several years ago, the mothers group in this community rallied to help a group less fortunate at Christmas. The richest community in Madison County didn't donate anything to poor children or families, they spent hundreds of dollars to give the dogs at the shelter a nice Christmas.
These folks need to pay attention to the world around them b/c bad things DO happen.

A bright clear day at 10:00 a.m. in the morning and a woman pushing a stroller with a child gets hit. They are on the edge of the roadway which is paved and the roadway is defined by stripes for the berms and center lines.

The road is in a private community that pays Association fees to hire around-the-clock Deputies in marked patrol cars with the latest speed measuring equipment to patrol for infractions.

The posted and journalized speed limit everywhere in the community is 25 mph. and signs that fall into compliance with the national manual for uniform signs and control devices are posted throughout the neighborhoods. The line-of-sight distance everywhere is good to excellent and drivers have an unobstructed view when driving with due care and while traveling within posted limits.

There hasn't been a pedestrian related crash at Choctaw Lake in years so sidewalks aren't the solution.

Paying Attention Is!

You are right. There are residents taking leisurely strolls around this area all the time. Someone was not watching their driving.

Well maybe now they know better than to be out in the road...especially if they are unable to pay attention to what is going on around them.
