2 West Carrollton women killed in Miamisburg crash

Published: Saturday, April 22, 2017 @ 5:22 PM
Updated: Saturday, April 22, 2017 @ 11:10 PM

UPDATE @ 11:10 p.m.

Two West Carrollton women were pronounced dead at the scene of a crash early today in Miamisburg.

It was dark when police say a woman driving lost control on King Richard Parkway and drove up onto the curb and crashed into a tree in the yard of a Merry John Drive home. 

"Can you send an ambulance and police?" a caller tells a 911 dispatcher. "Uh, somebody just ran into our house with their car. The people in the car, I can't tell if they are moving or not." 

On Saturday evening, friends huddled around the crash site to remember 27-year-old Carol Pressell and 23-year-old Courtney Morgan Cole. Friends said the women were coming back home from a night out. 

The house was not damaged, but police said alcohol and speed were believed to be factors. 

Residents say speeding is a common problem in the 25 mph zone, where the road signs also say "Thank you for not speeding." 

"I see (motorists) speeding up and down the street all the time and I'll holler because the kids play up and down on the sidewalks," Aaron Collins said. 

Funeral services are still being planned for the two West Carrollton friends, and the crash also is still under investigation.

FIRST REPORT

Two West Carrollton women were pronounced dead at the scene of a crash early today in Miamisburg.

Crews were called around 2:15 a.m. to the intersection of King Richard Parkway and Merry John Drive.

Officers found a 2009 Ford sedan, occupied by Carol Pressel, 27, and Courtney Morgan Cole, 23, had apparently lost control, left the roadway and struck a tree, according to the Miamisburg Police Department.

According to 911 calls, the car struck a house in the 800 block of Merry John Drive.

Speed and alcohol are suspected to be factors in the crash, which remains under investigation, police said.

Demonstrators march for science on Earth Day in downtown Dayton

Published: Saturday, April 22, 2017 @ 7:42 PM

Demontrators took to the streets of Dayton today in the name of science.

These marches happened across the world as people defended science on Earth Day.

Courthouse Square in downtown Dayton was packed with 1,200 to 1,500 people of all ages. They chanted "save our planet," "know all the facts" and "science not silence" as they marched. 

"It's kind of upsetting to see how our government has been treating science," said Jessica Spanger, a local organizer. 

Some wanted to promote the fun side of science. 

"People don’t realize how interesting it is," said Ned Rasor, a physicist. 

Others said it's a politically charged event following recent changes in Washington. 

Organizers said the March for Science is bipartisan, and that they hope to get attention from both sides of the aisle. 

"We start influencing our policymakers to make evidence-based decisions rather than making decisions off of opinions or based off of what their lobbyists tell them to do," Spangler said.
