Kathleen Hickey, Billy Hickey Killed in Semi-Truck Accident on Route 49 Near Fort Recovery, OH

Fort Recovery, OH — Two people died in an accident with a semi-truck north of For Recovery, Ohio, on Wednesday, September 24, 2014. The victims have been identified as Billy and Kathleen Hickey, a married couple from Piqua, Ohio.

Reports say that the two were driving along Route 49, around 7:30 in the evening and failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Route 29. They drove into the intersection and collided with a semi-truck.

A utility pole was brought down in the accident, leaving about 50 households without power. Dayton Power & Light employees were on the scene replacing the pole.

The Hickeys were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the truck was not injured.

Scene of the Accident


I realize that this accident seems pretty black and white. A couple was out driving, ran a stop sign, and crashed into a big rig. Is it possible that it really is that simple? Of course it is. But is it possible there was a reason the victims did what they did? Was there a problem with the car? Could they not see the stop sign? I don’t know, but I think it’s important that we don’t write these sort of accidents off too quickly, regardless of how black and white they may seem.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
