Beloved West End woman honored with crosswalk dedication

Street dedicated to West End woman killed in crosswalk

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A beloved West End resident struck and killed while walking in a marked crosswalk last month was honored with a street dedication Tuesday.

The event in remembrance of Donna Pringle, 67, included several speakers followed by the unveiling of a street sign at Linn and Chestnut streets, according to a news release from Cincinnati City Councilman Chris Seelbach’s office.

At the dedication, Seelbach said renaming the crosswalk serves more than just to honor Pringle’s legacy.

“Donna Pringle Crossing will be here every single day to remind us what happens when we speed, when we focus on cars and not people,” Seelbach said, “and how much we have to lose when we don’t have safe streets.”

Seelbach added an ordinance reducing lanes will be introduced to city council when it returns in September.
