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.
