ANDERSON TWP., Ohio – A 23-year-old man who was hit by a car while trying to cross Beechmont Avenue continues his road to recovery at a local hospital.
Hamilton County Sheriff's deputies were called to the intersection of Beechmont Avenue and Salem Road at 8:11 a.m. Friday after a 2013 Toyota Corolla struck Noah Goertemiller, 23, of Cincinnati as he was attempting to cross the road.
According to Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil, the driver of the car, Karin Dietz, 29, was traveling eastbound in the right lane of Beechmont Avenue when she ran into Goertemiller. The pedestrian was transported to University of Cincinnati Medical Center by the Anderson Township Fire Department and was listed in stable condition as of Friday afternoon.
Medics with the fire department took Dietz to Anderson Mercy Hospital for treatment. The Cincinnati resident's injuries were considered minor, according to a release from the sheriff's office.
The preliminary investigation indicates Goertemiller was crossing from a cross walk at the time he was hit, according to the release, but it's unclear if he had the right of way.
Alcohol and drugs were not a factor in the crash, Neil said in the release.
The crash remains under investigation by the Hamilton County Traffic Safety Unit. Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call (513) 825-1500.
