2 killed after head-on crash in Fairfield County

Channel 10 news - Thu, 02/21/2019 - 03:20

HOCKING TOWNSHIP, Ohio (10TV) -- The Ohio State Highway Patrol confirms two people have died and three others are injured after a three-vehicle crash in Fairfield County.

It happened just after 8 p.m. on Wednesday on US 22.

Troopers say 72-year-old John T. Doe, of Lancaster, was driving eastbound on US 22 when his car went left of center, side swiping one vehicle, sending them into a guardrail, and Doe's car then hit another vehicle head-on.

Troopers say Doe and his passenger, identified by OSHP as 73-year-old Maryland Doe, of Lancaster, were both killed in the crash.

OSHP says three other people involved in the crash, including a juvenile, were transported to local hospitals to be treated for their injuries. Their conditions are not known at this time.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

City of Columbus looking to the future of self-driving vehicles

Channel 10 news - Thu, 02/21/2019 - 01:31

COLUMBUS – Roadways around central Ohio and the cars that drive on them are forever changing but new developments in self-driving vehicle technology could affect communities beyond the roads.

A study by CBRE shows self-driving vehicles may have the greatest impact on U.S. real estate markets since the mass adoption of the car and expansion of the federal highway system in the 1950s.

The connection between autonomous vehicles and real estate is simple; it’s in the commute.

For example, CBRE uncovered that 30 minutes is the longest tolerable commute time for 56 percent of millennials in the Americas.

That fact alone can affect where they live and work.

“If an employer is looking to draw from a base and they have longer than a 30 minute commute time, that does make it more difficult for them to retain their employees and to attract new employees,” said Mike Copella, CBRE managing director.

Copella went on to explain that CBRE believes autonomous vehicles could help fill the commute gap.

“Think about the fact that if you didn't have to be behind the steering wheel paying attention to what's on the road, right? And I think a lot of us are guilty of trying to multitask while we're driving so not only do I think it's a safer way to be mobile and to get around the region, I also think that you know, people will be more willing to take those longer rides because they can work while they're going to wherever their destination is,” Copella said.

If people are willing to accept a longer commute by using a self-driving vehicle, based on their research, CBRE came up with three hypotheses for the future:

  1. With autonomous vehicles, outlying locations with big business, like Marysville or Obetz and those areas unserved or under-served by the public, may become more accessible and more desirable.
  2. Access to nearby talent may be less of a priority for location decisions if autonomous vehicles extend the distance people are willing to commute.
  3. With less of a need for parking infrastructure, walking locations, like parks and urban retail, could become more valuable.

No stranger to real estate, leaders in the City of Columbus are diving into how these self-driving vehicles could shape Columbus and the suburbs around it.

“As we continue to grow, we're projected to add a million people over the next several years, we're going to have to move those people to and from their workplace, to health care, to education and we want to do that as efficiently as we do right now but we're going to have to do it differently if that's going to be accomplished,” said Kenny McDonald, president and chief economic officer of Columbus 2020.

The City of Columbus is already among those leading the way when it comes to developing self-driving vehicle technology, McDonald explained.

“We are in the game,” he said. “So I think that every city is thinking about these things, whether that's Shenzhen, China or Tel Aviv or right here in the United States. Columbus is a recognized player on the field now and that's really important.”

In looking at a timeline, the study by CBRE breaks down when cities around the country can expect to see self-driving vehicles on their roads.

Columbus falls into wave two, along with Seattle and D.C., meaning Columbus could start to see some of those autonomous vehicles fully navigating the roadways by years 2021 to 2025.

Tune in to 10 This Morning Friday at 6 a.m. to learn what the City of Columbus is doing right now with autonomous vehicles and what is next.

Channel 10 news - Thu, 02/21/2019 - 00:27

VINTON COUNTY, Ohio - Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a single-vehicle crash that sent a man to the hospital.

Investigators say a man driving a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am failed to negotiate a curve on State Route 327. The car crossed the center line and went off the roadway. It eventually struck a ditch, became airborne, and hit several trees.

Vinton County EMS transported the victim to a local hospital. He was later transferred to Grant Medical Center in Columbus.

The crash remains under investigation.

Ice climbing 101 at Azure Mountain

North Country Public Radio - Wed, 02/20/2019 - 22:00
Ice climbing is kind of like the wild cousin of rock climbing; it’s cooler, has more sharp edges, and only comes around certain times of the year. Our region has a lot of opportunities to do it, especially in the Adirondacks. A complete novice to the sport, I went out with a group from the Outdoor Program at St. Lawrence University in late January to climb an ice flow at the base of Azure Mountain.

Well-dressed birds of the North Country

North Country Public Radio - Wed, 02/20/2019 - 22:00
While the North Country is not exactly the tropics, we do have our share of exotically-colored birds. Blue creatures, for example, are rare in nature but we have the bluebird, the blue jay and the indigo bunting. Then there are the goldfinches and the cardinals, the ruby-throated hummingbird and more. Martha Foley and Curt Stager celebrate a little of the local color in colder climes.

Pataskala reminds drivers to park off the streets during snow removal

Channel 10 news - Wed, 02/20/2019 - 19:29

When it's snowing outside and it's slushy, the last thing you want to do is go out there and move your car off the street, but you should.

If you don't, you're making it difficult for those who plow your street. In Pataskala, crews have been out all day clearing roads.

"Since 3 a.m., right when our guys went out," Mayor Michael Compton said.

When Compton isn't sitting behind the mayor's desk, his personal business is helping to remove the snow from the roadways.

He doesn't clean city streets, but personal streets. And, like clockwork, he says he sees it.

"Yeah, it's an every year fiasco," he said.

At least 50 subdivision streets have parking restrictions specifically for snow removal telling drivers not to park on the streets. Compton says the word goes out in quarterly newsletters to help remind people.

"Park your car in your neighbor's driveway that night if you can," he said. "Do anything you can to try to get them off the streets so the guys can go through and clean it out."

Pataskala Public Service Director Alan Haines says the parking restrictions are on the newer subdivisions and that they were not required for older subdivisions. But, after complaints from the fire department last year, he says the city is now working with HOAs and police to help better control the parking in those areas.

Wednesday, pictures were posted to a Pataskala Facebook page from a man saying he noticed damage to his truck after the plow came through. Haines says it was investigated and the man was legally parked, however, the damage wasn't caused by the plow, but by the snow.

"You're trying to push that snow at a certain speed to get it off the road and it's so full of water," Compton said. "Today probably was the worst I've ever seen and I've been snow plowing for 30 years."

The city says it noticed about 50 mailboxes knocked down Wednesday and received about 10 calls. If it's determined a plow hit your mailbox, you could file a property damage claim and possibly be reimbursed up to $60. But, if the damage is due to the snow being pushed by the plow, the city will not cover it. Haines says that's why it's best to stay on the driveway.

"It not only prevents property damage, it also makes our job a lot easier to get the snow cleared from the road," he said.

OSHP: Prison inmates planned possible escape, riot

Channel 10 news - Wed, 02/20/2019 - 19:01

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The State Highway Patrol says inmates at an Ohio maximum security prison were plotting "a possible escape attempt and possible riot" when the plan was interrupted.

The patrol is investigating the Feb. 12 incident in which authorities confiscated three fake handguns, drawings of handguns, and a fake explosive device.

Prison officials have described the plot at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville as "a very serious and unique situation."

The patrol referred to the possible escape and riot in an initial incident report obtained by The Associated Press through a records request.

Investigators found a fake bomb in a hole in a shower stall frame, three realistic-looking fake guns made to resemble Glock handguns and parts of a fourth gun.

Inmate suspects were placed in restrictive housing.
