EAST PRICE HILL (FOX19) -

Cincinnati police filed charges this week against two motorists in separate accidents that killed pedestrians, including an elderly East Price Hill man last month.

James Jackson Jr., 42, of East Price Hill is accused of hitting and killing 74-year-old Ronald Watring as Watring used his walker to cross Warsaw Avenue at 8 a.m. Oct. 24.

Watring was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he died.

Police investigated and concluded Jackson failed to yield to Watring, who was in a marked crosswalk, as Jackson turned left from Woodlawn Avenue onto westbound Warsaw Avenue.

Jackson is held in lieu of $10,000 bond at the Hamilton County jail on charges of vehicular homicide and vehicular manslaughter.

The case is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing Nov. 18.

In an unrelated case, Bobbie Hope, 70, of Westwood is accused of striking and killing Patricia Owens as Owens crossed Werk Road about 11 a.m. May 30.

Hope was charged Tuesday with vehicular homicide and vehicular manslaughter. She does not yet have a court date.
