One person is dead and 2 others were injured following a hit-and-run in Mt. Lookout in late August.

The city of Cincinnati has had 201 pedestrian crashes so far this year alone, according to the latest city data. In one tragic case, a 25-year-old man died after a hit-and-run on Linwood Avenue. Neighbors there say the road is treacherous for walkers. In another case, a man was hit and killed in a crosswalk Downtown. Recent data shows that Downtown has one of the highest rates of pedestrian crashes in Cincinnati.

On Cincinnati Edition we’ll look at the neighborhoods most impacted and efforts to make our roads safer for pedestrians.
