Vanderburgh Co. residents concerned about speeding drivers

Posted: Updated:
VANDERBURGH CO., IN (WFIE) -

Lisha Pohl says it's been a difficult 24 hours for her family. 

On Wednesday, she says her daughter and granddaughter were walking in Westbook Mobile Home Park when a car hit their dog. "My granddaughter cried at the top of her lungs hysterically for four hours. It was just so traumatic to her," said Pohl.

She believes speeding may have played a role in the accident. "We're very lucky, not to lose our dog, but that someone in this area didn't lose a child," said Pohl.

Pohl's daughter, Jennifer Hale, says the loss of their dog has been hard. But now she says she's on a mission to make the area a safer place. "If getting the word out saves one life, whether it's a fur kid or a real kid, that's all we wanna do," said Hale.

Neighbors say dangerous driving in the mobile home park is nothing new.

They say they're worried about what could happen if people don't slow down. "Safety.  That's all we want in this area is safety for our kids and safety for our pets. But mainly safety for each other," said Michael Kimmel, Westbrook resident.
