She said Alter has had grief counselors on hand in the aftermath of Kim’s death, which happened just outside her home, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.
The wreck involving a pick-up truck occurred about 2:30 p.m. Jan. 1 and was the first pedestrian fatality the sheriff’s office responded to this year, said Christine Ton, its media director.
The teen “was standing near the mailbox of (her home) and then began to cross the roadway to travel north and in doing so failed to yield the right of way,” a report from the sheriff’s office states.
The investigation is ongoing, but “no charges are expected,” Ton said.
The eastbound truck driven by Jeremiah Miller, 40, of Centerville hit the victim and she landed in a ditch on the north side of the road, authorities said.
Kim was taken by Washington Twp. EMS crews to Miami Valley, where she died from blunt force injuries and her death has been ruled an accident, according to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.
The Dodge Ram truck driven by Miller was estimated at 45 miles per hour in the 55-mph zone and had three passengers, the sheriff’s office report states. All four were treated at the scene.
Visitation for Kim will be at 10 a.m. Friday at Tobias Funeral Home, 648 Watervliet Ave, Dayton. The funeral is set to follow at noon.
